As a take on the play, this makes sense, as Marianne is trying to abandon the path her father has plotted for her, is trying to get away from her neighbourhood of maliciously gossiping store owners, inane retirees, and menacing butchers — and from her fiancee, her childhood friend Oskar, the well-to-do owner of the butcher shop.
Thalheimer has always been a master not simply of compression and speed, but of switching registers radically, from extremely fast to near-catatonic.
