There were no curtains hung in the Scandinavian homes in order to show that their residents, especially women, had nothing to hide; that they lived honestly and devoutly. But what about the residents of contemporary homes, hiding behind the heavily curtained windows? Are the curtains hiding only their sins and minor misdeeds? Or are they hiding dreams as well, allowing the residents to break the bonds of propriety, to, if only temporarily, forget about social expectations? The Austrian playwright Werner Schwab mercilessly opens these curtains. He allows us to look into the deeply hidden desires of his presidents, the pillars of the middle class community, who, in spite of being burdened with everyday concerns, are still dreaming of love. And only behind the curtains they can safely fantasise.
