  • “This is not the first attempt to use cultural events to bridge the gap between the countries. Polip, a literary festival in Pristina, first held in 2010, has Serbian writers among those regularly invited to participate.” - The Guardian

  • “…the play is an explosion of burlesque, music and possibly offensive humor; it is simply a riot.” - Prishtina Insight

The comedy “Hypocrites or the English patient” will play at the Theater festival in Gjilan

The comedy “The Hypocrites or The English Patient” deals with the health care system, which, being caught in the trap of capitalism and neoliberal policies, has become a gangrene for contemporary Balkan societies, and beyond. The health care system functions not to serve citizens, rather, it serves the pharmaceutical industry, insurance companies and private hospitals who see the health of their patients as a product from which they should benefit and accumulate capital. There has been marketization and commercialization of health care; meanwhile public health care institutions are in a miserable condition, with corrupt and misanthropic doctors.
