“I see people running away and I try to stop them to ask what is happening … at last someone says, Let’s hope it has started.”

On the eve of the 1989 Romanian Revolution, and under the eternal watch of the secret police, two families, one poor and one wealthy, struggle to survive anarchy and confusion during the last gasps of Ceauşescu’s paranoid Communist regime. But once the violence has ceased and the euphoria has lifted, will anything have changed? A play of romance and politics, bookended by weddings, Mad Forest blends together documentary theatre and magical realism to explore the psychological landscapes of people trying to find freedom.
