'The Strange Couple', one of the most famous American comedies of these last 50 years, is the latest show that is presented to the public on the stage of National Theater. This comedy, written by Neil Simon, is directed by Inis Gjoni who said that she chose this piece due to the powerful dynamics of human relations and its compatibility with the nowadays actuality in Albania.
The comedy unfolds the story of two individuals, much different from each other, who learn to live together in absence of harmony, tolerance and compromise, creating a cohabitation whose failure is unavoidable.
“I was intrigued by this comedy on view of the fact that it examines a series of topics like the family, marriage, divorce, cohabitation, communication, friendship, society, etc. Meantime the idea is that the compromise and tolerance are the core that leads toward a social regulator whose absence would make our society and the human relations dynamics much rough than it is actually,” said director Gjoni.
This comedy that presents the viewers with a humoristic tableau which conveys powerful messages brings on stage a brilliant cast of actors like Romir Zalla, Gentian Zenelaj, Mehmet Xhelili, Ervin Bejleri, Besmir Bitraku, Rozana Radi and Anais Lika.
