The Comical Tragedy

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Comical Tragedy is a warm tribute to the theatre as an art form. It is an absurd comedy about time and love. A lone actor fills the stage with great drama and lots of roles. Far beyond the stars sitting role and wait for someone to perceive it. The need to find their Actors to get down to the people and take their place in the world. But who is really important - the role or actor?
