Things are never as bad as they could be
The characters in Tom Heithoff's audio dramas are often men on the brink of a nervous breakdown which in turn threatens more far-reaching consequences.
They are fugitives: stubborn outsiders on the run or people who have slipped through the cracks. Between escapism and disorientation, language often falls away as a usable means of communication. The stories are built on fragments of text, within which statements and responses drive language and its potential for mutual understanding into the absurd.
The award-winning plays of Tom Heithoff walk the boundary between absurd comedy and earnest realism.
