Teatrul Dramaturgilor Români (Romanian Playwrights’ Theatre), ROMANIA
Written in the form of a police farce, including a mysterious disappearing and some lovely investigators, the play is in fact a powerful satire hidden underneath the veil of comic situations and language. Witty, with realistic characters that sometimes get fantasy-like and absurd traits, this text is anything but obsolete. Human nature has remained the same. But for today’s audience, going back 40 years adds an extra kick of flavour to it – a detail cleverly exploited by the famed stage director Victor Ioan Frunză with the help of Adriana Grand’s thoroughly re-enacted staging.
English subtitles are available.
