“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.”
The 1989 Romanian revolution left a country in chaos. Caryl Churchill uses a blend of theatrical journalism and magical realism to provide an account of this wrenching moment in European history. Part documentary, part bold imagining, Mad Forest challenges our expectations about the nature of civic revolution, and the people left to pick up the pieces.
