Teatrul Național "Marin Sorescu" din Craiova

By: Their Majesties King Mihai I & Queen Ana
Directed by: Alexandru Boureanu & Raluca Păun

Written in 1960 in Versoix , Switzerland, the play “The Choice” is the parable through which King Michael I of Romania and Queen Anne transpose the feelings of a world set adrift. The fight between Good and Evil is waged wearing masks and the characters’ cunning seems to come out of Iago’s shadow: Bitterness and Lightness are two sides of the same coin, one of them corrupt, showing the human venality in a double relief. One speaks in the name of violent Leninism, the other in the name of pleasure and hedonism sans ideology. What will Man choose when faced with an essential choice?

"A modern concept, a compatible set design and music that precisely intensifies the desperate quests of the characters, faced with the choice of humanity's destiny." (Ana Paraschivescu)
