From the screenwriter of La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2 comes an absurd, ironic, one act play written for “simple, deplorable entertainment.” Yet, with this story of a poet and his hidden secret, Ennio Flaiano gives us so much more.
Defying his audience’s expectations once again, Flaiano plays with the rules of the detective mystery, pointing out the iniquities of modern bureaucracies that rule human existence. Echoes of Ionesco, Allen and the Marx Brothers make this one-act play an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
