Un homme mène une lifestyles en apparence toute lisse. Mais un jour, soit parce qu'une déception, un revers, un deuil..., a brisé ses défenses et détruit ses appuis, soit parce qu'il éprouve le besoin de partir à los angeles recherche de lui-même, il se trouve engagé dans une errance au terme de laquelle, bien des années plus tard, après avoir parcouru un interminable chemin, il air of secrecy le sentiment de s'être découvert, d'avoir rencontré sa vérité. Cette pièce a pour thème l'aventure de los angeles quête de soi et de los angeles radicale transformation qu'elle entraîne. Cette aventure est longue, douloureuse. Au début, elle est vécue dans l. a. confusion, los angeles détresse, une angoisse extrême. Loin de tout repère, tout chemin, l'être avance à tâtons dans des contrées inconnues, désertiques, où s'enchevêtrent l. a. peur de se perdre et le désir de conquérir un accord avec soi et le monde. Contre toute attente survient pourtant l'instant décisif du lâcher-prise. L'être renonce à tout vouloir, consent à déposer les armes. C'est alors qu'il se trouve en mesure de se laisser guider et reconstruire par des forces qui vont faire de lui un être clair, unifié, apte à se tourner vers autrui.
By Edmond Rostand
Regarded as one of many maximum dramas ever written, Cyrano de Bergerac is the tale of the silver-tongued soldier whose unlucky appears force him to woo his love by way of talking for his good-looking yet dull-witted rival.
Cyrano de Bergerac occupies a different position within the sleek theater. intentionally disavowing realism and modern relevance, Edmond Rostand’s masterpiece represents a turning again in either time and spirit to an prior age of excessive experience and hovering idealism. Its superb hero, Cyrano—noble of soul and gruesome in visual appeal, gallant Gascon soldier, terrific wit, and timid lover, alternately comedian, heroic, tragic—represents some of the most demanding of all appearing roles in its complexity and mercurial alterations of temper. From its unique creation to the current day, Cyrano de Bergerac has loved a charmed lifestyles at the level, its unflagging speed of motion and eloquence of language spell binding critics and public alike. the following, in a superlative translation, is the last word triumph of the good French romantic tradition—a paintings which, within the phrases of the French critic Lemaître, “prolongs, unites and blends…three centuries of comedian delusion and ethical grace.”

By David Mamet
Having positioned his own stamp at the modern theater, David Mamet now plays the supremely audacious feat of reinventing the theater of the prior. He does so by way of telling his personal inventive and eerily relocating model of the tragedy of Dr. Faustus.
Mamet's Faustus--like Marlowe's and Goethe's sooner than him--is a thinker whose life's paintings has been the pursuit of "the mystery engine of the world." he's additionally the distracted father of a small, adoring son. Out of the conflict among love and mind and the deadly operation of Faustus' delight, Mamet models a piece that's right away caustic and heart-wrenching and whose resplendent language marries metaphysics to conman's patter. A meditation on cause and folly, fathers and sons, and a wide ranging demonstrate of magic either literal and theatrical, Faustus is a triumph.

Nell'ultima scena, according to cui è allestito un giardino, l. a. madre scopre l. a. bambina affogata nella vasca e, presa da orrore, scorge dietro un albero l. a. figura del giovinetto che, con occhi da pazzo e una rivoltella nascosta nella tasca, ha assistito alla scena.

A variety of the earliest current performs by way of an important dramatist in classical Sanskrit
Bhasa is among the so much celebrated names in classical Sanskrit literature. He lived and wrote approximately thousand years in the past. although his dates haven't been conclusively confirmed, it truly is convinced that Bhasa preceded Kalidasa, the good poet and dramatist of historic India, who has praised Bhasa through identify in a single of his personal plays.
Bhasa's works have been thought of misplaced and it was once in simple terms at the start of the 20th century that a few of his performs have been recovered. Six of those, which shape the current assortment, are in line with the Mahabharata, which gives a thematic harmony to the performs. Bhasa's strengths have been his skilful melding of discussion, legend and dramatic motion. The relatively brief and fast moving performs in The Shattered Thigh are impressive of their nearness to fashionable idiom regardless of their antiquity.
Of the six performs during this assortment four—The heart One, The Envoy, The Message and Karna's Burden—are one-act performs evoking tragic and heroic feelings. 5 Nights and The Shattered Thigh have 3 and acts respectively. The latter is a tragedy within which the hero dies on level, an innovation that's very strange in Sanskrit drama.
