No wonder that the next production was a comedy. We tried to accommodate to the “market” and make something that could be easier to sell, something that would “fit in” more.

Obviously, what we had on the repertoire was not intended for mass bookings, it was not commercial. On the other hand – we didn’t have an “entrance” to other places where our performances would fit – and these were probably certain theatres and theatre festivals.

Instead, we “dragged ourselves from hell to the bottom of the pit”, thus destroying the value of the plays themselves, as well as our own confidence.

The best remedy (what we did after about two years) was to store and save our productions and not waste any more pearls before swine. And so we started working on “something new”, which after a long search, big mistakes and wrong-ways, will finally become “Le Triomphe …”.
