‘The Romanian Cultural Institute is proud to support the world premiere of ‘The Unburied. The Saint of Darkness‘(2016), an unexpected take on Antigone’s myth by award-winning playwright and poet András Visky, one of Romania’s most notable theatre personalities. The play, skilfully transposed into English by Jozefina Komporaly, is produced by [Foreign Affairs] Theatre Company and performed by an all-female international cast made of Irene Panni, Isobel Pilkington, Megan Smith and Olivia Negrean, under the direction of Trine Garrett and Camila França who are also the Artistic Directors of [Foreign Affairs]. Don’t miss the conversations with the daring dramatist after each of the first two shows!

Visky’s play is a bold and poetic interpretation of mythological Antigone featuring Mother Teresa as the contemporary reflection of the Greek heroine. Experiencing a similar sense of responsibility, duty and mission as her fabled counterpart, Teresa, portrayed by four different actresses at various ages,  confronts society’s utter inability to deal with current tragedies and social ills.

The 22-25 November performances will be followed by talks covering subjects like women in theatre, theatre in translation, and theatrical creativity.
