Monchichis, glass figurines, stones, marbles, wigs, chairs, coins, cars, toys, dolls, typewriters, model trains, tractors, guitars, stuffed animals, thimbles: people collect things. Motivated by scientific curiosity, passion or to reap admiration. In The Collectorsthe title says it all, because the heart of the latest play by Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone are collectors from Hannover and their collections. What treasures will they present to us? What stories? In search of theatrical moments in everyday life, the award-winning directing duo 600 HIGHWAYMEN explore the lives of people who have devoted themselves entirely to collecting.

The Collectorsis an early version of the piece that will premiere at Festival Theaterformen in Braunschweig in July 2020.
