I Killed My Mother


Romanian ethnic-Hungarian playwright András Visky is one of the most esteemed contemporary playwrights of Eastern Europe. I Killed My Mother is the story of Bernadette, born in Ceausescu's Romania. Exposed to cruelty and neglect as an orphan in early childhood, Bernadette still embodies a strong sense of morality and self-respect, as well as the capacity to love and forgive. Together with her first love, Clip, she survives abandonment and institutionalization by conjuring a spiritual landscape of hope and order. Her empowering coming of age story (based on true events) is a quiet yet captivating theatrical witness, revealing the compelling personal truth behind the shocking tabloid images that made headlines 20 years ago.
