A passenger plane with 164 people on board is hijacked by a group of terrorists and is directed towards the Munich football stadium where a match is underway. On a Tornado, Major Koch needs to decide what to do: better to shoot down the plane, sacrificing the passengers, or risk the life of the 70,000 football fans? It’s an impossible dilemma: the logic of the numbers is not enough. Major Koch decides to destroy the plane. He ends up sued and a number of accusations are made: has he obeyed his superiors? If so, whose responsibility is it? And is he guilty or innocent?
This is the plot of Terror, the first theatre piece written by the German author and lawyer Ferdinand von Schirach, which was a hit with German and international audiences and is adapted and performed in an Italian theatre for the first time.
Terror touches upon a complex themes, entangled in legal and moral codes and immersed in the depths of the human mind.
In the production directed by Kami Manns, it is the audience who decides the Major’s fate, setting up a jury for a trial which reveals the vulnerability of our democracies and of the human condition.
