Contemporary pieta

The play Delusion, there are many seemingly not connected scenes, that bring us bittersweet feelings, whose interpretations are up to the viewer. It is a parallel between real life and alternative theatre. Even though the title evokes sad and depressive emotions, fortunately even now the authors found the way to a good humour: both visual and verbal. The situation, where parents are bringing their alcoholic son, mother crying and son seeking for refuge clinging onto her legs evokes the famous Pietà by Michelangelo. One wants to laugh on this, even when he knows shouldn´t.
