Sandu Grecu, the director of this new performance, has always distinguished himself through his strikingly topical approach to any dramatic, historical, or present-day subject. Referring to the social-political-dramatic situation in our Republic, the director places the protagonist of “The Mousetrap”, the imaginary universe created by Hamlet himself in his play (play-within-a-play), which was created to expose his father’s murderer. The hero broods looking for a way out of this deadly trap, but unfortunately there has never been one. Starting with the first minutes of this performance, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, takes us to the very heart of the story through well targeted gestures. In front of your eyes, the history that will take us to Hamlet’s well-known story unfolds; it’s written right there, like another play within a play, corresponding to what will be “The Mousetrap”.
Performance in Romanian, with translation into English.
Performance not recommended to audiences under 14.
