    Pansion Eden tells a story about dreams, fears and desires of a family trying to make the ends meet in time of war and capitalist domination. Some of its members have engaged in foul play and tried to cover their illicit activities. As Schilling was preparing his project in Zagreb with his co-authors Juli Jakab and Éva Zabezsinszkij, they found the inspiration in a terribly disturbing criminal case in Hungary which was impending a court verdict at the time. It is a story of 71 refugees who were left to suffocate in a refrigerator truck by a ring of human traffickers who understood perfectly well that such a vehicle was not suitable for transportation of people. But did they feel responsible, and if so, to what an extent? When family secrets begin to emerge in Pansion Eden, and the family members are forced to admit what they have done, their lies, fears and desires surface alongside the facts on abuse of power, corruption and their religious beliefs. Pansion Eden is Árpád's Schilling’s first theatre direction in Croatia.
