During his residency at MQ, Finn Job will be working on his second novel. For this, a play in prose, which he is writing under the working title Damenschach, Job mixes elements of commedia dell'arte with the means of modern storytelling, 19th century doppelganger literature, the grotesque and screwball comedy. Five characters meet at a dinner party in a remote villa in the Vienna Woods and discuss the hot topics of the present.
