The boulevard comedy ‘Out of order’ by Ray Cooney, the first production of the Elisabeta Theatre in Bucharest will premiere on 22nd October at 20:00.
The play directed by Serban Puiu brings together some outstanding names in Romanian theatre: Aurelian Temisan, Bogdan Stanoevici, Cristina Stamate, Monica Davidescu, Alexandra Velniciuc, Vasile Calofir, Adrian Gheorghe, Anca Dinicu, Iulian Burciu, Georgeta Ciocârlan, Teodora Pacurar, Valeria Stoian, Mediafax informs.
The first production of the Elisabeta Theatre is an adaptation of the ‘Out of order’ play written by British playwright Ray Cooney, for which he has been awarded several times, including the Laurence Olivier distinction, a prize that recognizes excellence in the British professional theatre. Cooney is believed to be one of the most important British comedy writers, and received in 2005 the award of Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
The story of the play takes place in a London hotel, where Minister Richard Willey has a meeting with the secretary of an opposition leader although he was supposed to sit in some important Parliament meeting. The situation becomes complicated when they discover the body of a dead man in the hotel room where they were meeting. Since reporting the incident would disclose the adultery, they decide to hide the corpse found near the window. However, their plans are disrupted by the intervention of the suspicious hotel manager, of the waiter who would do just about anything for a nice tip, of the angry spouses but also of the clumsy assistant, the awakening of the dead man and the window that literally gives headaches.
The direction is signed by Serban Puiu, the set design by Iuliana Gherghescu and the play was translated by Irina Margareta Nistor.
