About the show
New York, 1964. A young man, who everyone called Red, committed suicide and left his family in total despair. While family falls back into memories and tries to fill the void with words, his young widow comes back to a wealthy home to reclaim her rights. Even his spirit won’t be able to resist coming back and dealing with those closest to him … This is a picture of America in anxiety at the beginning of war in Vietnam. From a genial selection of Salinger’s novels, Koltès has written a drama about a hysterical family, sexually neurotic youth, lost generation of parents etc. It is considered the most violent and avant-garde work from Koltès.
This year, as we remember 20 years after death of Bernard-Marie Koltès we will uncover a statue in his honour at the opening ceremony of the new quarters of Mini teater on Krizevniska 1, Ljubljana, Slovenia on 23rd of October 2009 at 20.00. A renowned Croatian academic mason Dejan Kljun made the statue of this great drama playwright.
