Gluecklicherweise war das Deutsch ganz leicht zu verstehen, und alle haben "Das Versprechen" total genossen!

On Sunday, March 14, many of the students went to see Friedrich Duerrenmatt's "Das Versprechen" (The Promise) at Salzburg's Schauspielhaus. The play takes place in Switzerland, and tells the story of a detective, Kommisar Matthai. At the beginning of the play, a young girl is murdered, and Kommisar Matthai, who is forced to bring the terrible news to the parents, promises the mother that he will find the murderer "bei seiner Seeligkeit." Through a series of twists and turns, this Versprechen ultimately leads to the detective's own downfall.
