A woman in a supermarket drops dead in front of the spirit shelf. At that very moment, Bernd, her husband, is meeting up with two women for casual sex in a hotel. One of their daughters, Jess, wakes up next to a stranger after a night spent together. The other daughter, Ashe, is a single mother who finally cuts all ties with her ex-boyfriend, a drug addict, after an argument. And Steven, the youngest sibling, reunites with his lover – a reunion that is overshadowed by his relationship angst.

In his latest play, British playwright Simon Stephens skilfully interweaves these individual storylines and paints a both inscrutable and optimistic portrait of a family between goodbyes and new beginnings.
The play is directed by Lilja Rupprecht, who has worked in Berlin, Hanover and Cologne, among other places. LIGHT FALLS is her first production at the Burgtheater.
