On rare occasions in life there comes a night you’ll never forget. A night, when all the demons lurking beneath the surface are released and take over, so that suddenly you find yourself playing a dangerous game, which you no longer control. A night, when everything becomes embarrassingly open and all the pain that you’ve been suppressing during the years, suddenly bursts out of you. And yet, it is all caused by love – by big, overwhelming and eternal love.

Among the playwrights of the 20th century, Edward Albee is one of the most masterful experts of psychology, but he’s also a humanist who firmly believes in freedom and dignity. His play was staged in the Tallinn City Theatre by Mladen Kiselov (1943-2012), a renowned Bulgarian director who graduated from GITIS in Moscow in 1968 as a student of Anatoli Efros, from 1980 worked mainly in the United States as director and drama professor, and spent his last years living and working in Estonia.
