„The world of this play reveals the madness of our world; the performance is played by the patients of a mental clinic, and is directed by the Marquis de Sade. The fundamental question arises: who really is crazy? The patients or those in power… who abuse it? We must work without taboos, I like to say that theatre is one of the few places on earth where we can talk about anything without being influenced by anyone. It is up to us to verify every day if we still live in democracy and whether freedom of expression is practiced and guaranteed. We should not be afraid to talk about „Revolutions” and their abuses. Historically speaking, we know that revolutions destroy their followers, that new powers are always perverted by the human being, that Humans are selfish and paranoid by nature, this is a fact; nevertheless, we have a duty to talk about it on stage; what is the ideal and where is the perversion of the ideal? In this play and especially in my interpretation of this play we talk about failure, the failure of revolutionary ideas and the failure of personal fulfilment. The public can draw their own conclusions.” (Charles Muller)
