Svetlana Makarovič: Dead Man Comes for His Mistress

Prešeren Theatre Kranj

The breathtakingly beautiful and multi award-winning play Dead Man Comes for His Mistress is based on the eponymous folk song as well as Slovenian poet France Prešeren’s adaptation of Bűrger’s Lenore. While adopting the magical rhythm of folk tradition, the author, Svetlana Makarovič, tackles the narrative poem from different angles and offers a signature reworking. She introduces two protagonists, two Micka characters, who fight for dominance and survival. Moreover, there is also Sveti Tadej, an errand boy, a seer, a confession-taker. And two mothers. Micka’s and Mlinar’s. None of them was able to escape the sharp pen of Makarovič and the insightful direction of Jernej Lorenci.
