At the age of nineteen, Alice fell into deep depression, suffered in the grip of obscure and weakening diseases, stayed for most of her life in bed, wanted to commit suicide, wrote a diary, and died at the age of forty-four in breast cancer. Zoltán Balázs, the internationally acclaimed Hungarian director, has staged the twisting, multi-plane story exploring the labyrinths of Alice’s wounded soul and the causes of perpetual family conflict.

The performance will be performed in Bosnian with Hungarian and English subtitles.
