The story starts sad. When she was six years old her mother died, her father gave her dog away and the family spontaneously moved to America. And this is just the beginning of Welcome to My Pathetic Youth.

The setting is less pathetic. We are in the family home and descend to the basement. It is full of boxes and one by one Aaf takes out the slides. We watch eighties TV together and see the famous orphans and half-orphans who inspired her. From Annie to the children Von Trapp and E.T. Loneliness enough. In Welcome to my pathetic youth, Aaf Brandt Corstius shows that a pathetic youth can be a goldmine.

The performance is by no means all about loneliness. Beautiful memories of her mother cooking, throwing parties and putting everyone to bed in soft pajamas every night, get a well-deserved place on stage. So it will not just be a sad performance, it will be a night of reminiscing, a night out.
