The novel "Infinite Fun" tries to tell the contemporary world on 1500 pages without subjecting it to a uniform interpretation. David Foster Wallace writes about births and death struggles, about snowstorms, love and separation stories, exaggerated salivation, picture-perfect nurses and birds that suffer a heart attack in mid-flight. The author dedicates himself to his tragic and comic characters, who are "panicked" by worries, by the fear of failing grief therapy or merely being "furniture of the world", with great seriousness and a tremendous lightness at the same time.

Thorsten Lensing's acclaimed production with Ursina Lardi in one of the leading roles was invited to the Berliner Theatertreffen in 2019.

"Suddenly you know again why people are on stage, and other people look at it: because there is nothing more comforting than to find oneself reflected in all inadequacy." – Süddeutsche Zeitung
