About Performance:
Frenzy for Two  starts out as a stupid argument between a couple about whether a snail is different from a tortoise or not and ends up as war. Whatever approach one takes to interpreting the famous play of Ionesco, if any, it is an entertaining one-act tour de force.
“In this play, war is a metaphor. As the relationship breaks down, so does the city. Is doesn’t matter here which side wins. Both flags create the illusion of “war-game” – “The one who didn’t lose won the battle”, “they weren’t right because they were defeated.” Everything that happens in couple’s life is like a delirium – their endless arguing, accusations, and harassment or physical abuse for nothing. You look at them and realize that this is how we live today, the war starts for no reason and everything that remains is fear, fear of death. “When nothing happens, then everything happens”.
