The To Be or Not to Be Trilogy – Part 2.
The play focuses on death, loss, the right to death and life, and the boundaries of life and death. It is set in contemporary Hungary, with its laws, its social public opinion, its spoken questions and unspoken answers, or vice versa, its unspoken questions and its spoken (ready prepared) answers. It also explores how human body changes, how it is becoming fallible, and to what extent are we masters of our own body and soul, what are the energies, the traumas, when one loses control of their body.
“It is a great pain when one feels more than one can express. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretence, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience. (Meryl Streep quoting José Micard Teixeira)
We don’t recommend this performance for people under the age of 14.
