Languages of publication
Ewald Palmetshofer is an Austrian dramatist of the younger generation (born in 1978) who has recently been gaining more and more recognition from both the audience and critics, in Austria as well as in Germany. In his play hamlet is dead. no gravity (which had its world premiere in 2007 at the Schauspielhaus Vienna) he tries to dissect a modern family life on the brink of collapse. Palmetshofer’s characters are struggling in a world without God, in which heaven is only a “machine” and traditional values such as love, mutual trust and respecting your elders are being forgotten. These are being replaced by antagonism, frustration and egoism. This article is an attempt to analyze the play.
