Read Synopsis

Examining the stories of two families, Mad Forest portrays the experience of life in a police state.  Through sharp and often silent snapshots, the play evokes the Romanian mood: people sullenly waiting for meat, students nervously making anti-government jokes, someone suddenly muttering “down with Ceausesce”.
