‘PLAY’ that was directed by Şahika Tekand at first in 1994-95 at the Studio Oyuncuları Theatre, and then in 2012 at the Istanbul Municipal Theatre, each time with a new interpretation, is once again meeting with the audience with a new staging, this time performed by the powerful cast of the Studio Oyuncuları Theatre Company.

The play written by Samuel Beckett is built upon a repetitious structure in which two women and a man trapped in an abstract space and situation are forced to speak very fast and tell about their history of an ordinary love triangle as they are illuminated by an abstract light that moves through them.

Recomposed/reconstructed by Tekand and brought in a totally different expression from its previous stagings, ‘PLAY’, is realized in a setting in which people who are censored by means of a massive and raucous pressure whenever they try to express their opinions, feelings and objections openly and are forced to make their presence felt/ exist within the limits of their small worlds only.
