High school in Zurich, Saturday night, in an old gymnasium. This is where Zoe throws a secret party. The night ends in disaster: Zoe is raped. And no one knows who it was. And so, “That with de Zoe” shakes up the whole school…

What is the matter?

Friendship, love, morals, trust, guilt, sex, bullying, revenge – these are the themes of “The Thing With Di Zoe”. But the podcast series is also a thriller: Who is the culprit? The more I got involved with Zoe’s clique, the more confusing things got. What really happened that night? Will rape be resolved? Does it lead to the division of the clique? And anyway – will normalcy be possible again? A difficult-to-understand crime was reconstructed from different angles. The boundaries between truth, lies, and projection are constantly shifting.

Is it a true story?

The series is fictional, but it is authentic and close to the reality of young people. Last but not least, thanks to the young staff: because the clique is played by drama students from Zurich. Music is 21 years old Zurich Noah Ferrari Compose, record and sing. “The Thing With Di Zoe” It is an intense and emotional listening experience: the effect of binge listening is guaranteed.

The series was produced by Danish Radio DR in 2018 under the original title: “Det med Liv”. The story was written by screenwriter Julie Budtz Sørensen and combines the quality of a Scandinavian soap opera with the intensity of strong radio theatrical dialogue. Swiss theater maker Andreas Liebmann, who lives in Copenhagen, translated the SRF text into Züritütsch and adapted it to Swiss conditions. The radio theatrical series was produced in and around a radio play studio in Zurich.
