“The law student Alice gets lost in a forest in Lili Roesing's Play “Growth”. As law student Alice (Flurina Schlegel) searches the dying forest for a world that will find its way back to intergenerational justice. But the clock is ticking. And the hands cannot be turned back. Voices from the off remind her of her childhood, when the ecological system of the forest was still intact. Schlegel shows how the young woman works while the world collapses on her. The first state examination is more important than saving nature. Ludwigsburg director Nandi Nastasja locates Roesing's terrible images of a new generation of indifference in a spooky fairytale forest. With Emma Holzapfel's sound design, she reflects fear of the future in sounds. The voices pound on Alice more and more, forcing her to question her values: what are you doing with the life that is being stolen from your generation?”

Elisabeth Maier, Theater der Zeit

"This piece shows two worlds on different levels: Alice's adult self, who wants to make something of herself, meets her happy child self. The beloved, familiar, living forest on their city "that works". Past meets future. And finally, the realization that you are too late and that you are no longer able to do anything meets the accumulated legal knowledge, which becomes useless at that moment. Brilliantly played, these questions also affect the audience, because the forest is essential for all of us."
