Shopping & Fucking, first (and probably the best) play written by the legendary Mark Ravenhill, represents one of the supporting pillars in a structure created toward the end of 20th and early years of 21st century by authors of new European drama. They sought their topics and their answers in the borderline areas of human soul and human society, believing that the safe and comfortable existence of the western world and the idea of good life and progressive urban society was nothing but a surface under which festered and boiled a different, less affable, but much truer existence – a life replete with perverted sexuality, the need to abuse others and be abused, disease, violence, weakness, desire and love.

Iva Milošević does not seem phased by the type of rebellion Ravenhill’s characters seem to embark upon, and even less prepared to justify their actions or feel sorry for them. Looking at them from her own point of view, the point of view of someone who belongs to the same generation, the director sees their rebellion as a fall from grace and a posture which is nothing but a failed attempt to hide an appalling feeling of contentment with their own demise.” (GLAS)
