The man was dying for one hour and eighteen minutes bound hand and foot and lying on the floor, intentionally devoid of medical care.
Here's a question: If a person puts on a prosecutor's uniform, doctor's white smock or mantle of a judge, does he or she lose the ability to be human? Does he or she still have at least a hint of humaneness/humanity left inside?
In our case, these people, by putting on a ‘smock’, have fallen out of (the) humanity.
Those who are guilty in the death of the hero: the investigators, judges, jailers, doctors; will appear on stage and we will give each of them a monologue. We will call them by their real names, so they are able to come to the theatre and watch themselves.
They judge people in courts but we are also judging them in the theatre.” (M. Ugarov, director)
