Thomas Bernhard was a razor-sharp analyst and pessimist, who in his dark plays inimitably took apart the illusions of the day. His oeuvre is characterised by an abhorrence of Austria and its culture, lacerating comments, an exceptionally wry humour and characters who act without thinking. In these respects, Total Thomas does credit to Bernhard. This production celebrates the paradox of his existence, because although he hated art and constantly shed doubt on the sense of it, he frantically continued to produce it.
