The play takes place in the nearest future. World globalization is completed, but its result appeared to be unexpected. Thirld World countries such as India, China, Vietnam and others took first positions and become leading world empires and European countries including Austria fell into despair and took the lowest positions in global economy and political influence. Heroes of the play are three young girls from Austria, who have to do low-paid jobs in order to survive somehow. The girls work at a sewing factory, they sew cheap t-shirts. Their employer is a company from India, and half of Europe work for this company.
One of the most prominent contemporary Austrian playwriters, Volker Schmidt, touches one of the most sensible issues of our time - a theme of communication development in our world. And also the theme of globalization and its consequences. He manages to look at the world at a completely different perspective and with a brilliant humoristic style. This is certainly a necessary exercise for the complete development fo our civilization. The play is written with vivid artistic language, which was practically constructed by the author.
In the play Volker touches not only philosophical and geopolitical problems, but also topics abouth human relationships: love, fear, anger, struggle for survival, all these topics are demonstrated distinctly, with a good dramatical taste.
