Magda Szpecht’s play is an adaptation of Delmore Schwartz’s best-known short story. The 21-year-old protagonist describes his dream about watching a film in the cinema showing his parents on a date. His father’s sudden proposal provokes a violent reaction in him; this awakened memory and the mechanisms of remembrance lay bare the oppressive aesthetic and narrative structures responsible for the shape of the dreamy reality and more. Szpecht designs the action with four actors, creating a kind of a performative installation that breaks down the traditional separation between the stage and the audience. She uses a variety of strategies to engage and activate the spectators and make them leave their comfort zone as mere observers of the depicted world. Music plays a vital role in this para-theatrical impression, creating specific states and moods, but also stimulating the performers to move into the next surprising action around the literary original.
