Old Clown Wanted

Cyprus : Old Clown Wanted

Dionysos Theater presents the play "Old Clown Wanted" by Romanian-born playwright Matei Visniec, directed by Varnavas Kyriazis.

Plot:
Three elderly men arrive with suitcases in a windowless room. Three out-of-fashion clowns who bump into one another at an audition. They are old, out of fashion and desperately hoping they'll be chosen as it's clearly their last chance. They have answered an advertisement stating "Small Part for an Old Clown". When no one arrives to interview them they start performing their old routines. Who is the best actor?

The scene opens on an announcement of auditions for an Old Clown posted on a door. Filippo and Niccolo arrive first, and there is much tension between them, for there is only one opening to be filled. Over time, however, the two realize that they trained together and were once close as brothers. Their camaraderie only carries them so far, however, before competition for the job takes over again. Now they are joined by Peppino, whom they are delighted to recognize as their old teacher and mentor. But again, joyful reunion is spoiled by the tensions inherent in their desperate circumstances.

An approaching carnival sends the trio into reverie and each begins to perform his best tricks, the ones he is sure will land him the clown job. Then Peppino perfectly executes a cruel joke. In gleeful triumph, he begins to mock the pair with unrelenting laughter, setting unexpected forces in motion.
