Ashima Theatre Group’s second performance on stage was DAS TREFFEN, named after the German word for 'The Meeting'.  Inspired by the ‘Trip’, this thriller revolved around the weird and unpredictable circumstances faced by three hitman who gather in a dilapidated  house to plot the killing of the target.

The play ends in mysterious circumstances leaving the conclusion and the interpretation to the audience.
