Death of a Theatre Critic. 1 May to 5 May at the Pleasance

Tuesday, 1 May, 2012

Joakim Groth’s 2009 play comes to England

Death of a Theatre Critic is a dark comedy about chance and destiny following the hardships of a theatre director. After having his latest production torn to pieces by the leading critic, he then encounters misfortune in his private life as well. Things are going down hill fast. Alone and unhappy he goes all-in on one card to put everything right again. A decision with unforeseen consequences…

Today, we find it hard to accept this absence of freedom, the predestination of people’s lives. We like to believe that we can choose our fate. Perhaps that is why we find it difficult to accept the inevitable condition of our lives; namely that can only be, precisely as in the ancient dramas, only one possible ending. There is only one ending.
