TEST is a play that won the highest award for dramaturgy (Askeer) in Bulgaria.
The play TEST, by the prominent Bulgarian playwright and poet Elin Rahnev, is a brilliant satirical metaphor about the struggle of keeping one's identity while being forced to fit into society’s parameters in order to survive in this world. What and who is damaged when trying to follow society’s norms? In today’s dynamic and unpredictably changing world, we often face pressuring challenges on so many levels. How do you deal with them? Have you ever felt pressured to conform, comply, and/or lose your identity? Do you easily adapt to whatever comes?
Without giving too much away, The Company is the ubiquitous power in the society/world of this play, where Anton attends his first job interview to join the infamous corporate giant. His expectations completely fall short of what The Company is and his worldview is turned upside down. And so, we leave you with these last few questions: Does Anton have the willpower to escape? Does he want to escape at all, or is The Company’s grasp on him too strong? This play will surprise you with its satirical sense of humor and it will keep you on the edge of your seat with tears and laughter. Presented by two very talented professional actors, it is fun to watch, and also philosophical enough to challenge your views about life. Come and see how it all unfolds.
