How to Kill the President
A satirical play that examines political power, manipulation, and the absurdities of political life.
This drama takes place in one of the European countries in transition. The hero is thirty-one-year-old Igor, who is against globalization and is prepared to fight for a new world in any way he can. His brother Robert, who is fourteen years older, struggled against Socialism when he was a young man but has now become a conformist. Igor returns to his homeland with his fiancée, Maria. His brother Robert and Robert’s wife Stella don’t like Igor’s radical views about globalization and anti-globalization because they fear he could threaten their careers and their family well-being. The play was premiered at the &TD Theatre in Zagreb in 2004. It has been translated into English, Italian, Slovakian, Polish, Japanese, German, French, and Albanian. The play had six premieres.
