About the Play

The great creations of the great master Samuel Beckett, peeping into the hole of nothingness where we can see an allegory on the power of the totalitarianism and the struggle to oppose it, the protagonist, representing people ruled by the directors. The absurdity also explains an aspect of psychological duality. “Memories are killing. So you must not think of certain things, or those that are dear to you, or rather you must think of them, for if you are not, there is the danger of finding them, in your mind, little by little. That is to say, you must think of them for a while, every day and several times a day, until they sink forever in the mud.” That is an ORDER.
