An insane asylum. Three physicists. Three murders. A formula. An inspector. Three nurses. She's a doctor, she's sick. They're crazy, they're physical.
The world slipped out of their hands at the sound of the violin.
This play, written by Swiss playwright Friedrich Dürrenmatt and premiered for the first time in 1962, had never been performed in Portugal, having been applauded by audiences all over the world. In an adaptation by Miguel Sousa Pinto and Ana Sacadura, the work was staged by Producer Lais de Guia in co-production with the Cepa Torta Theater Group.
A Swiss text and author, an ironic and disconcerting humor and a diagnosis of a society structured on inverted rules were the necessary ingredients for the desire to materialize this project to emerge.
