A production by Peter Müller (Theater Handgemenge) and Susanne Claus

world premiere

Co-production with T-Werk Potsdam, Schaubude Berlin and Theater Vorpommern GmbH
Supported by Landeshauptstadt Potsdam

"Tomorrow Can Wait" is the story of an old man, who should  go to sleep. But he doesn't want to. He is afraid his soul might leave his body if he closes his eyes in the darkness. So, night for night, he fights to stay awake by rekindling old memories. And exasperating his neighbors in the process.

But Herr Peterman is by no means finished with life; au contraire, there is  so much more he would like to experience. And since it is never too late for an adventure, he departs his home one night by the light of the moon in his self-made "bed-mobil."

He see the most astonishing things, crosses paths with both old friends and new creatures. And experiences a rush of emotions like never
before. Oh whatta night!

Performance also possible with live music!

The new production "Little Häwelmann" is for children 4 years and older and families and can be performed on the same stage.

"In the one-hour production, this is shown with wonderfully detailed pictures which, just like the profoundly reduced texts, one would like to hold in one's hands in book form. The scene in which Petermann says that even as a child he could not sleep because he wanted to grow up quickly is also beautiful. The staging strikes these arcs between the beginning and end of life wonderfully light and playful. All in all, "Der Morgen kann warten" captivates with its attention to detail, lots of humour and linguistic wit. The production is wonderfully floating in its statements in the shadow play part..." Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten

"The burning issues of old age and the nursing home were realised with melancholy, tender humour, but above all with a great deal of poetry.  Vorarlberger Nachrichten
