TOM SOYER AND DEVIL’S BUSSINES

GRADSKO POZORISTE PODGORICA

Montenegro

Milica Piletic

After the story by Mark Twain
Directed by Nikola Vukcevic
Playwright’s Note:
Tom Sawyer and Devil’s Business is a story in which two worlds collide, very different and yet closely connected. Children and grown ups! From a child’s perspective, anything goes in the world of grown ups. And from the perspective of grown ups, children’s world is easily controlled by sanctions and prohibitions. Children are, therefore, in an inferior position, and the grown ups in a superior one. So, children, that’s how it always has been and how it always will be! You on one side, us on the other! We know what’s best for you, you have no business thinking or speaking up! However, childhood is not eternal and one day you will grow up too. The circle continues. But what happens if children and grown ups swap places before that day arrives? It must be some devil’s business.
