MIHAI ARSENE and SIMONA ARMSTRONG on stage in What Shall We Do With The Cello? by Matei Visniec

Posted by Avanti Productions & Management Ltd. on January 23, 2017 at 1:25 PM

AVANTI P&M is very pleased to announce that our clients MIHAI ARSENE and" target="_blank">SIMONA ARMSTRONG have been cast, are currently rehearsing and will be performing in the first take of Matei Visniec's play WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE CELLO on UK stage, directed by Vasile Nedelcu for Atelier Theatre and The Romanian Cultural Institute. The performance is opening in London's VAULT Festival 2017 and will run between 8th - 12th February. 


Something is wrong, the rain just won't stop. In a waiting room: the man with the newspaper, the lady with the veil, the old man with the stick. In a corner, the man with the cello is ceaselessly playing his instrument. Very quickly, the repetitive and obsessing tune drives them mad. They try, taking turns, to convince him to stop, but the man with the cello won't. He is playing, more and more passionately, alone against everybody... The others will have to organize themselves against this unexpected musical aggression...


This is a brilliant play for our times, written by a major European playwright, Matei Visniec, who sought asylum in France from Romania in 1987. Banned in Romania until after the fall of Ceausescu, this razorsharp and very funny play on intolerance and the terrible consequences of living without thinking was written from a place of deep experience.


VAULT FESTIVAL 8th - 12th February at 19:15pm with Matinee on 11th February at 16:45.
