GTA (German Theater Abroad) Road Theater USA embarks on a hilarious theatrical adventure - or misadventure - as 5 actors (3 German and 2 from the U.S.), 2 Austrian video artists and the GTA go cross-country in a "enhanced" schoolbus, travelling from New York to Los Angeles in search of the "American Dream". The play within the performance is Start Up, a black comedy written specifically for GTA by Roland Schimmelpfennig, Germany's most produced contemporary playwright.
Young Germans come to the U.S. to find their fortunes: their million-euro idea? To sell German culture. Of course, that is exactly what GTA's Road Theater USA. is attempting as it travels across the country presenting this fast-paced farce.
