This is theatre in a world governed by insanity; as Dan Stanca remarks, the play could be set anywhere – in Pitesti, in the Siberian Gulag, in a Nazi concentration camp, Maoist or Khmer Rouge extermination camp, and, even, in one of the CIA’s secret prisons... This is the principal merit and black humour of the play.
