Marriage seriously harms you and others around you.
This is a production about the information held back by the registrar (as if he were an almighty oncologist). It is about those risks and undesired side effects.
It is time to face the inevitable fact that marriage – or any relationship of that kind – leads to slow and certain death at the end of the tunnel. It leads to the blockage of the arteries, causes heart attack, emphysema and seizure. Marriage may contain benzene, nitrosamine, formaldehyde, hydrocianid, E223 and traces of peanut and dairy derivatives. According to the official opinion of the Healthcare Ministry, married couples live happily ever after.
Out of Carlo Goldoni’s two hundred plays only a few is performed in Hungarian and European theatres. In January 2013, Katona put on an unknown Goldoni play written in 1756, Summerfolk, directed by János Mohácsi. In the play, an illustrious group of people go to spend some time on the countryside by eating, drinking, hunting, playing cards and mocking each other’s weaknesses. The host is cheating on his wife, the wife has a mistress who is cheating on her with other women, while peasant girls from the neighborhood are trying to seduce the noblemen.
