Launch: Xanthi, 18/12/1983

In these two one act-plays, Vampilov uses masterly the form of the anecdote to express, through its paradoxes real events and satirize them in the light of a comic-tragic prism. In the former, the subject is the alienation caused on man by the pursuit of a post, of some even little power, making him being oppressive towards the inferiors to him and coward towards to his superiors. In the latter, the subject is the alienation that money provokes making people being suspicious towards every disinterested action. The absurd comic situations appearing and the vivid dialogue cause the spontaneous laughter of the viewers.
