THE ROOM

by Raimondo Cortese

The Room is a play for one actor which unfolds within the claustrophobic dimensions of a room, surrounded on all sides by a projected landscape of the man in the room’s eerie imaginings. The man interacts with various ‘ghosts’ from his past and ritualizes his obsessions with the few remaining objects left at his disposal. His situation becomes increasingly more bizarre until he is engulfed by madness.
The play is non-naturalistic. It is a metaphysical journey into the central characters soul. Meaning slowly disintegrates, rationality slowly crumbles, past and present are fused into a continuous verbal monologue.
