Bridge.  At the stroke of midnight. Only the moon and the two suiciders. Meeting by chance or meeting on purpose? Being on the edge of their existence, these two characters raise fundamental questions about the meaning of life. The world we live in takes a journey from the psychological reality to the absurd triviality and that is an enormous range, a hole you fall into and examine love, family and society issues highlighting the distorted image of the modern man.  A test for capitalism.
This a play for freedom and democracy no matter how much abused, for self-censorship and for the ones who gave up too early from the true existing, for the loneliness, for the lost touch and for being so lost hurrying after the false values. Who is the real man today? What should they be like? How many masks do we put on in order to function in the grim reality and its botched standards?
The fear of dying and the fear of living truthfully.
Marjan Gjorgjievski
