THU 19 JULY @ 7:30 Special guests, mother and daughter, Diana and Desara Bosnja.
After both shows there will be a discussion on many things that we have been thinking and talking about for the last few months (Including embedded critics and the purpose of post-show discussions).
Gods ... is an investigation into what happens when we discover that our parents are flawed human beings, and that at some point, sooner than we think, they are suddenly going to disappear from our lives.
Intimate and funny, this play presents a lifetime of conversations, condensed into one hour.
“I suggest you take your mother along to see it. Walk out with her arm-in-arm, just like I did. It may be too early for drinks at that point, but it won’t be too late to talk.
For as long as it’s not too late to talk to your mother, “Gods are fallen” may not break your heart.”
Natalia Antonova, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, The Moscow News.
“Dimitrijevic’s sequence of four repeating mother-daughter conversations is perfectly simple in structure. But within its framework, she produces a superbly subtle analysis of the comedy and agony of this closest of family relationships.”
Joyce MacMillan, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, The Scotsman.
