Can I demand your resignation if yesterday I asked you to sell me tires without issuing me a receipt? Should I spend Friday night playing with my child or fighting for my child? In my free time, should I run, cook, clean, socialise, read, or should I protest in front of the parliament? What is my role in society?

It is in the parts where the actors allow their own considerations to come up that they come across as the most honest, and consequently less easy on the audience, because not only is the distance between the ensemble and the audience is smaller, the distance between the role and the actor shrinks as well, which opens the space to questions about one’s responsibility […]
Jure Novak has been courageously tackling the events from the last couple of years, without excuses or dreamy idealism, and the comedic form even intensifies the postmodern anxiety and inability.
