Branislav Nušić

A Suspicious Person

Directed by Jagoš Marković

Set Designer: Jagoš Marković, Costume Designer: Stefan Savković, Speech: Ljiljana Mrkić Popović, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić,

First great comedy by a famous comic playwright and one of the most popular, funniest and most daring plays originally written in Serbian.

The country seemed to be undergoing a period of change, new traditions and habits replaced old ones, influences from the East and the West vied with those from the North and South, dynasties came and went, governments replaced one another, borders have been redrawn and yet this insightful and cruel play by Nušić about the ambitions and fears of upwardly mobile civil servants in a small provincial town has never stopped making people laugh at the expense of others as well as their own.

This production, directed by Jagoš Marković with the stellar cast of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre, coupled with Nušić’s keen sense of humour, brings to light unforgettable images of rancid and stale lives of small town Serbia.

“This production of the Suspicious Person is a well organised burlesque (with a romantic finale), it is extremely funny and extremely intelligent, making audiences laugh without feeling embarrassed.” (DANAS)

“You carry on smiling even after you have left the theatre, (…) the smile which confirms that it is still worth going to the theatre where you can see consummate skill, knowledge, concepts and an excellent grasp of structure…” (NOVI MAGAZIN)

Nebojša Glogovac’s portrayal of Yerotiye is impeccable. He is currently one of the best actors in former Yugoslavia…” (NOVOSTI, Croatia)

“Dear audiences, things could not be clearer; the latest production of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre is simply unmissable.” (BLIC)

    Tartuffe

    Directed by Egon Savin

    One of the most powerful, bravest and most lucid works by the greatest comic playwright in the history of French and world theatre. This comedy about hypocrisy was, at the time it was written, banned by the very same hypocrites because it was too provocative, too freethinking, too lucid and daring …

    It Had To Be So

    Directed by Egon Savin

    This authentic and full blown melodrama, one of the rare ones in our literary tradition, was written by the most prolific and most popular Serbian comic playwright. This exciting and touching tale takes place in old Belgrade and shows how vanity and envy, irresponsibility and avarice, pride and selfishness in one family – and in a society ruled by money – can destroy a life of a decent human being, torn between love and duty.
