The children of rich parents are rich from birth without having to lift a finger. They inherit wealth as “legitimate offspring”, just like that. Nora Abdel-Maksoud has a word for it, the “ovary lottery” and for her wickedly comic play “Jeeps” has come up with an alternative way of redistributing wealth: the inheritance lottery. Everyone, from the scions of family-run commercial empires to people existing hand to mouth with the paltry income from recycled bottles deducted from welfare benefits, queues up in the job centre, pushing, shoving and bickering to get their lottery tickets from Armin or Gabor. The situation spirals out of control when two “disenfranchised” women, Maude and Silke, try to use force to get what is rightfully theirs. “Jeeps” uses waspish humour to point up systemic class differences.

Press reviews
Nürnberger Nachrichten/Nürnberger Zeitung

„Zunächst als Klischees angelegt, lässt Martina Gredler ihnen allen genug Raum, um die Brüche in ihren Charakteren fein auszuloten. Das macht das Quartett auf der Wirklichkeitsebene des Stücks plastisch und authentisch. (…) Tempo und Timing stimmen bei diesem Klassen-Clash genauso wie die Interaktion der Schauspieler. (…) Denn nicht nur die Szenen, die die vier Schauspieler auf der Bühne spielen, auch die Bilder, die sie in unseren Köpfen erzeugen, verfangen.“

Birgit Nüchterlein, Nürnberger Nachrichten/Nürnberger Zeitung
