â€śI Miss Communismâ€? by Ines Wurth and Mark Soper
Running time: about 70 minutes
My name is Ines Wurth and I am from Croatia.
It's not in Asia, but it is in Europe between east and west.
And it is a part of Yugoslavia. kind of.
And it is Communist. . . Well, kind of.
There are very few rules and regulations in communism. The freedom of an individual has no limits. The system provides basic needs and the foundation for any human being. Mother government owns everything. No need to be a grown up.
I miss Communism.
Kind of. Why? Because.
It all started four years ago. After a busy, hectic day, I mentioned to my boyfriend that I missed Communism and he passed Hagen Daaz Vanilla ice cream out of his nose.
East goes West; communism goes capitalism; atheism goes God. From Croatia to America and back, my story is about three generations of women who lived through three wars in a drama with intense comic moments that won't leave you untouched. It's what I was raised in, it's what I came to America to escape from, and it's what I ran back to.
I miss Communism.
It's about freedom of the spirit not the systems.
It's about a woman coming of age.
It's about religion.
It's about war.
It's about Oliver Twist.
Also, as you can see on the website I HAVE GREAT NEWS!!!
My theater in Edinburgh is affiliated with 59E59
Theaters in Manhattan, a very reputable theater in
NYC, on 59th and Park Av.
It's a brand new theater, amazingly designed by a
fellow Croatian, total coincidence, who won all kinds
of awards for the design of this building.
It looks pretty impressive I must admit.
You can go to their website if you're interested.
They picked a few shows, mine being one, to have a run
in NY, as they call it, pre-Edinburgh.
I'm gonna be performing in NY for a week, from July
12-16th, in case you're there or you can tell friends
that live in NY.
I'm beyond excited. It's an amazing opportunity.
Thank you and have an amazing week.
