The night of Picasso
One act. Two characters. Dramatic comedy.
Two mental hospital patients meet in the hallway every night to write a film. Their work, however, has been at a standstill for years, blocked over a minor detail in a secondary scene. During a night of creative fury, and after having founded the new art of the next millennium, one of the two realises that he is the Messiah.
Available in English, Portugaise.

... The mixed sense of fun, perversion and surrealism... All the life is in the mind and the reality is wahtever you choose it to be...
... Shade of Backett, Ionesco and Kafka pervade this humorous, well-wrought one-act py Italian playwright Edoardo Erba...
... It's Kafka! It's Kaka with humor...
... It recalls the humor of Gogol, with the Charm of Italo Calvino and Fellini
