Experiencing Interruptions?

A Notebook for Winter

A Notebook for Winter, by Armando Pirozzi - translated by Adriana Rossetto - 2017 Ubu Award for Best New Italian Dramaturgy - Project selected by the Italian and American Playwrights Project, produced by Valeria Orani - 369gradi in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (grant "Living Italian style on stage")
A two-actor "Kammerspiel" in three acts.
An introvert professor of literature finds a burglar on his way back home. The knife-wielding burglar wants something unexpected from him: it is a question of life or death. During the entire night, the two characters talk, exchange ideas, feelings, ask painful questions out of hope and desperation, in a completely new and unexpected atmosphere. They will meet again years later, both affected by that night. Although their personal memory of that night is different, yet it may have triggered a change in both of them, by offering a further comprehension and awareness of each other. The key idea is based on the power of writing as a way to directly impact reality: the wonder resilience of poetry is not seen as a literary exercise, but rather as a vibrant force that affects life.
