Being Harold Pinter - Vladimir Serban
Launch: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 11/04/2008

''How is a theatrical play born? What is the difference between the truth of life and the truth of art? Should an artist mingle with politics? These are the questions that Harold Pinter poses in his speech for the Nobel prize. The play Being Harold Pinter begins and ends in search of answers to these questions. The plot's mementos which comprise the basis of the play are connected by the same issue the issue of violence in its completely different manifestations, beginning from violence in the family, to violence as the foundation of a government system and concluding with violence as a form of international relations. The stories follow one another, as the notional characters are gradually replaced by the real ones, both familiar and recognizable, and the reasoning regarding the events that transpired in the Abu-Ghraib prisons is followed by the actual monologues of political prisoners being held in the prisons of Belarus...''
