Everyday we turn on the news in the morning and when we go to bed at night, we hear reports about the International markets and how tomorrow will be another down day at the Dow. With the debt ceiling squabbling, the countries lower credit rating and omnimous talks of double dip, what does this mean to your bottom line. And what about those whose bottom line is month-to-month.
Spencer Howard gives us some tips and advice on what we can do when you are below income.
NILS wakes up into a completely fucked up day. He broke up with his bitch girlfriend the night before. HANS, his best friend, is a braindead asshole. His roommates are a couple of lesbians who will not let him into a threesome. HEIDI, one of the lesbians, is the girl NILS loves, but this love is not gonna happen… ever. PECA, the playwright who pays NILS’ rent, who is NILS’ absolute idol, tells him to suck his dick. There are news on TV about the imminent end of the world. NILS’ mother, an ex porn star, dies. POPS, NILS’ older brother, a crackhead, brings an envelope from PECA. POPS begs for crack. What choice does Nils actually have?Maybe it’s more to life (or death) than this.
Described by some critics as the "most obscene play in the Romanian theatre", Nils' Fucked Up Day by Peca Ştefan is a sarcastic, trashy, punk existentialist take on the fucked up choices we have in this fucked up world. Starting 2011, the play is outrageously performed in English & Ro-English by Romanian actors.
The cast is made up of 5 of the best young actors in Bucharest, in the tradition of the MONDAY Theatre. Some of them have been in the films of the new wave in Romanian cinema and are currently appearing on stage in Bucharest in both mainstream and indie theatres such as Bulandra, Teatrul Mic, Teatrul de Comedie and Teatrul ACT.
