Ce ne andiamo per non darvi altre preoccupazioni [We’ll leave to save you further worries]. Presentation
by Lorenzo Guerrieri
On one side of the empty stage four actors (Daria Deflorian, Antonio Tagliarini, Monica Piseddu and Valentino Villa) murmur among themselves. Daria Deflorian approaches the proscenium and regretfully announces to the spectators that the actors aren’t ready and don’t think they’ll do the show. She tries confusedly to justify herself, stressing the importance of being able to say no and not compromise. Soon we’re told that the subject the actors really wanted to do was about four retired ladies who commit suicide with sleeping pills dissolved in vodka, against the background of the Greek economic crisis, leaving a note saying they didn’t want to be a burden on society by strapping the economy with their pensions. The subject is taken from Petros Markaris’s novel The Final Reckoning, a bit of information that remains implicit throughout the performance.
