Erika Ratcliffe: Bad Boy

In the organizer's words:

What the Japanese Viennese with a penchant for sarcastic self-exposure serves up to her audience is quite something: "Bad Boy" is a black-humored homage to Erika's turbulent life, a ludicrous cocktail of partly autobiographical, partly brilliantly added stories that unerringly go exactly where it hurts.

There are Erika's parents, for example: the strict, unsympathetic mother and the predominantly emotionally absent father, who desperately wants a grandchild. And in the middle of it all is Erika, who wants to do everything right, please everyone and would somehow like to be happier or more grateful - if only she knew how!

Because Erika has questions: What is the difference between depression and burnout? Doesn't excessive alcohol consumption also have its advantages - a good movie break, for example? Do feminists need better PR? What is the difference between "ladies" and "women"?

In "Bad Boy", Erika provides surprisingly astute, abysmal or deliberately provocative answers and also reveals why it's important to her that her psychotherapist finds her interesting and why she has no maternal instincts - and of course it's also about farts.
