During my stay at Faber, I will be putting the final touches on my new play "An indispensable person". A play that proposes to the audience to witness one night from the life of an amnesiac old man, who did not find another person ready to visit his house except for a male prostitute in the prime of his youth. A play about memory and loneliness. In this new work I am trying to understand is it enough to change the past of a human in order to control his future?
