|Directed by||Dániel Kovács|
Director Dániel Kovács candidly sorts through the tangled plot. The crossroads are clean. He befuddle them with artsy smudge. He tells a story to the audience. He doesn’t hide his bleak opinion about the world from the eyes of the audience.
The interpretation is primarily based on the idea of the "You may" in a moral and existential meaning. Of course, Katona József Theater speaks their words in a serious and extremly current way, in the middle of our tsunami-like commercialized society; seemingly resolute.
Judit Csáki, Magyar Narancs
Dániel Kovács reads Calderón in a very natural way. A way which is his own (and his generation’s) way. (…) He larks? adeptly, the players explain the royal pedigree with a slide-projector, they use drums as racquets in a gravel-fight and puts the pines and the puppet soldiers to the mountain of blankets. (…) The actors give all of themselves, this is what the Katona is best at, and a director at the beginning of his career cannot get more.
