The action of the play unfolds during the Second World War and tells about the French resistance movement. After a failed operation, the French collaborators captured the French partisans, who are awaiting trial. In the interpretation of the play, the action takes place in the theater, where the actors, who have been rehearsing the same play for a long time, lose their sense of reality. They immerse themselves in the circumstances dictated by the play and look for a theatrical way to redeem their heroes.

Drawing inspiration from Jean-Paul Sartre’s The Unburied Dead, this play treads the fine line between reality and fiction, delving into deep philosophical musings on life, death, faith and the search for meaning. Its main theme is faith and its potential to change our perception of existence. Actors represent each other’s tormentors and victims, looking for a goal in the pursuit of death. Questions about truth and lies are raised throughout the play, prompting the audience to think about how faith and dedication to one’s calling can change their perspective on life and morality. Each new process of creating a theatrical production resembles the construction of a new shrine. Theater in the face of war, art as a subject of construction of faith. Actors in the shadow of the dilapidated amphitheater waiting for their performance.

The idea of embodying one’s own executioner serves as a depiction of the complex duality within each person, delving into the multifaceted aspects of human existence where people face the conflicting sides of their identity. This duality may encompass considerations of ethics and morality, enlightenment and obscurity, or the clash between various ethical principles. Through the characters’ images of their own executioners, the play highlights the internal conflicts that shape human behavior and choices.

The actors are waiting for their verdict. They are waiting for an important scene. They are waiting for the final. They are waiting for the flood. A new world filled with frogs.
