Herr R. is living in West Germany in the early 1970s. He has a family he loves, a job he cares for, his own flat and his own television set which he watches frequently. There he listens to the news about the great achievements and encouraging words from the politicians. Friends and family come to visit. Herr R. has his own ambitions, his own worries and memories he cherishes. He is in good health and has a healthy love life. However, one fine day, Herr R suddenly….

hy does Herr R. run amok? And why do we, who do not live in West Germany in the early 1970s understand him so well?

At the Yugoslav Theatre Festival in Užice, Ardalion awards went to: the production as a whole, Bobo Jelčić for best director and Boris Isaković for best male actor. The production took part in the International Comedy Festival ‘Mostarska Liska’ in Mostar and at the One-Act Theatre Festival in Mladenovac.

The whole cast gave excellent performances but the two people who stood out were Boris Isaković in the title role and Nataša Tapušković in the role of Mrs. R.

This production by Yugoslav Drama Theatre has brought a breath of fresh air to theatre life in Belgrade.
