Political Theatre

Australian director Lindy Davies recently directed a production The Changeling, a play by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley. The play premiered two weeks at Slovenian National Theatre Drama and is Davies’ first production in Slovenia, although talks of cooperation began as much as ten years ago.

The play is considered to be one of the best Renaissance tragedies and is – according to Davies – highly appropriate for the times we live in. Seems like Bush, Cheney and their poodles were anticipated already in the 17th century. Pengovsky recorded and published the interview for The Firm™, but since it was done in English, I thought it would make a nice addition to the blog. Besides, you will once again have confirmation that I indeed write better than I talk :mrgreen;
