This farce by Austrian writer Franzobel, loosely based on Goethe’s classic Faust, leads its audience into the confusing world of a Viennese family who live in the lap of luxury: the prime location of a Ringstrasse palace. Meanwhile, the renowned dermatologist Johann Faust von Zupfnudel still searches, at the end of all his studies, for the meaning of life. After the motto "the skin as a mirror of the soul", he yearns to find a "good skin". Directed by Adi Hirschal.
