These days at Bucharest theatres…

The ACT theatre and the ProDrama Association present the show “Orphans” by Dennis Kelly today at 7 pm, directed by Elena Morar. The public is expected at a show exploring violence in the urban environment and the way it influences the calm life of an average couple. Helen (Simona Cuciurianu) and Danny (Ionut Grama) dine in their cosy flat in an ill-reputed neighbourhood in a British city. Their evening is turned upside down though, by Liam (Laurentiu Banescu), Helen’s brother, who suddenly comes up at their door in a surprising way, followed by similarly surprising explanations. A night of confessions and decisions ensues, which destroys, little by little, the serene life of the couple. Author Dennis Kelly is one of the most interesting playwrights in the UK nowadays, known for his pieces “Love and Money, “DNA,” “Orphans” but mostly for the script of the sitcom “Pulling” (airing on BBC), winner of the British Comedy Award in 2008.
The show “The Human Factor” directed by Alexandru Mazgareanu premieres on Friday and Saturday at 7 pm at the New Hall of the Comedy Theatre. “The Human Factor is a tragicomedy about a society dependant on anti-depressants, about the fear of loneliness and need for love,” says director Alexandru Mazgareanu. Ludovic builds an UFO in his backyard and his mother, fascinated by little Dorothy, finds refuge inside the Wizard of Oz universe. Both live in a fictitious world, trying to get isolated from the harsh reality of the contemporary world. Their small universe is shaken once Cendre appears, and the mystery behind her unravels gradually, revealing a tragic truth.
