*The show with the current cast premiered on 19 Jan. 2018


The triangle of death, with its obsession of implacable justice and immanent punishment - this is what makes the dense breath of this long-running TNC production still felt today, 19 years after its premiere, by an audience sensitive to the tragedy of the Caragian characters. Anca (Monica Ardeleanu, Costinela Ungureanu), Dragomir (Dragoș Măceșanu), Gheorghe (Cătălin Mihai-Miculeasa) and Ion the Shepherd (Adrian Andone) are the pawns of their own destiny, in which deceitful love, thirst for revenge and paroxysmal humiliation are the glue of a classic drama.



"The assumed madman is Ion and in this role Adrian Andone follows Valentin Mihali, a real challenge. Brilliantly solved. Adrian Andone makes a simple demonstration of different states, with multiple effects. On the other hand, it arouses laughter, because, nevertheless, the man also laughs at the funny manifestations, in the end, of a mentally affected fellow, doing it calmly and without any malicious meaning... The transitions from the mad man to the normal, sober, with a conscience, who opposes violence, only to return to the subhuman form in which the unfortunate conjuncture of his peers brought him.

In a way, this happy occurrence of the long life of a show, requiring a change of cast, to carry it forward, has a double meaning. First, regarding the ephemera in theatrical art. The ephemerality of the emotion of a performance but also the ephemerality of the game on stage. Actors live their lives in so many incarnations and now the audience can see how some go and others come. There were Nataşa Raab, Valentin Mihali, Constantin Cicort, Tudorel Petrescu, from now on they remain in the memory of those who saw them, they remain in chronicles and as immortalized by a film. Nataşa Raab's voice will continue to be present in the show through the final song."
