Anna, I Said!, 1992

3 male - 4 female

Panagiotis Mentis

A mentally disturbed, institutionalized woman lives and struggles with the memories, fantasies, suppressed emotions, and all the ghosts of her sick soul. An oppressive mother, a religious fanatic and tame father, a marriage arranged by the parents, a deadbeat husband, a miserable and closely-familial environment, and her desperate attempt to become a mother constitute her medical history. This history provides the dramatic impetus to follow her tortuous path through schizophrenia; the confused impressions, the blurred relationships and the plankton of a disturbed seafloor.

The conception of the central sick figure is the result of the author's deep study on relevant traumatic texts. The playwright does not force the viewer to pitifully observe a sick existence. He does not force the actress to invent realistic forms that mimic schizophrenia. His heroine confronts the ghosts of her past, and the viewer acts as a psychoanalyst; he studies the causes and the triggers, the roots of whatever has led this sick human being to a disorder.
