The director of this play by Ljubomir Simović is Jagoš Marković who will also be designing the set. Costume design by Lana Cvijanović with Ljiljana Mrkić Popović in charge of voice coaching.

The cult play by Ljubomir Simović premièred in 1974, directed by Mira Trailović, and it explores the themes of cruelty and suffering as well as the deeply rooted conviction that suffering is inevitable. Simović weaves the stories of a selection of morally dubious characters gathered in the Šargan tavern, lost somewhere on the outskirts of a city but also the world, into a complicated tapestry hanging somewhere between the past and the future. The play gives us an insight into the reasons behind cruelty but also an opportunity to question whether the vicious circle of suffering, and the need to inflict it on others, can be broken.

The production is scheduled to open in April.
