“Patricide” is an expressive play about anti-authoritarian rebellion, a piece about youth culture  which demanded radically the overthrow of old values and wanted to fight for an “autonomy of youth”.
The rebellion goes against a system of education which is founded on obedience. In Bochum, Uwe Dag Berlin lets the action in a two-hour attack rage over the stage, a breathtaking theatre machine has been put in motion,  an (expressionistic) film which does not want to end.”
(Rainer Wanzelius, Westfälische Rundschau)
