The Expiration Date of Jonas Müller (Age 70)
This show will premiere at Pleasance Dome at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Hi! I'm Jonas Müller (Age 27). Over the last few years I created storytelling shows with my best friend Tim. People wrote nice things about us, like:
''A fascinating curiosity of the Fringe and an intriguing piece of experimental theatre'' – BritishTheatreGuide.co.uk
''A sweet, touching story of unrequited love; a dark confessional on obsession and an inability to deal with contemporary life; and an elusive reflection on authorship and identity (...) it's a warm-hearted, poetic hour, fragile and poignant.'' - The List
He interests me and has made me wonder about the progression of theatre and how the Fringe Festival is impacting on that. A must-see.'' – Fringereview
Unfortunately last year something occurred.... and we haven't spoken since. I wrote this multi-person solo storytelling show to tell you what happened (next). It's also about an old man who shares my name.
Tim is going to perform it. It might be a good thing that he won't see the script before he walks on stage....
A show about killing your darlings, facing your insecurities and confronting your demons... even the ones you (sometimes) really really like.
A love triangle develops into a more interesting story about taking responsibility for your own work as an artist when it goes wrong, of taking a risk when it would be far easier to do something else. I really hope this isn’t Müller and Honnef’s last play.
In talking about art, they prove it’s worth making it. – The Scotsman
