Forget Hollywood

A historical figure meets two unusual patients, leading to an emotional encounter filled with humor and conflict.

The two establish an unusual closeness that gradually grows into ruthless competition. The interweaving of the comic and the dramatic gradually leads to an unexpected conclusion. Premiered at the Epilogue Theatre in Zagreb in 1997. Translated into English, French, Hindi, German, and Slovakian. It has had 5 premieres to date.
