Roles: Husbands, Woman, Reporter
“Life went on and I’ve forgotten nothing, Ill.”
An elderly millionairesse, Claire Zachanassian, returns to Guellen, her home town, after an absence of many years. Merely on the promise of her millions, she shortly turns what has been a depressed area into a boom town. But there is a condition attached to her largess, which the natives of Guellen realize only after they have become enmeshed in her vengeful plot: murder. “
In the acclaimed play by Friedrich Dürrenmatt I had de chance to work for the first time among 5 different characters: the three Husbands, the first of the two Women, and the Reporter.
I made the decision of playing different accents for some of the characters to make them different enough between them. For instance, I played a German accent for the Second Husband and RP for the third one and the Reporter.
In this dark, technical and heavy production we included physical theatre, specially during the transitions, creating a visual journey with the images that were created.
