"Oh, those beautiful days" by Samuel Beckett is a two-act play. It has received worldwide critical acclaim and the author himself is a Nobel Prize winner. Some of them have rated it as one of the best written pieces of all time. She belongs to the Absurd Theater and her performances have recognized the important stages of many theaters in the world. The play is mainly a monodrama where the main character Vini is often compared to the importance that Hamlet has in the theater. In the first part Vini, a woman in her sixties is immersed halfway in a pile of sand in the desert, as the author describes it, which in our project we can treat as a pile of sand and inert waste to remember somewhat destruction after a natural disaster (earthquake) in which it has stuck there for a long time to remember. Around her crawls her husband, Vili, who reads the newspaper and occasionally warms himself in the sun. Vili almost does not speak at all all the time, only very rarely responds to Vini when he asks for an opinion, sometimes just murmuring.
While Vini who postpones time dealing with the sun umbrella, her bag and the objects she takes out of the bag remembers the beautiful days that had passed long ago…. In fact it is not very clear whether she really has spent beautiful days in her life or has ever dreamed of how many beautiful days she would spend her whole life. Or beautiful days are rather a metaphysical and philosophical belief with which she helps herself to be alive.
In the second part she is sunk to the ground, with only her head out and continues to remember or talk about the beautiful days. From time to time Vini wears a mask on his face against an alleged pandemic… The
scenography realized by Ardian Kapo is designed according to the needs dictated by the author. It will bring to the stage the visuality of a desert land with stalactites and stalactites where the main character will stand in the center of the stage immersed in the ground to the middle and stuck in this reality from where he can not escape. The music is also intended to be an integral part of this show where instrumental and vocal music will be combined, preserving the atmosphere in which the show takes place and the place where it takes place.
