For a playwright, the fate of the actors is crucial and, in the play "The Killing of Gonzago", contemporary Bulgarian writer Nedialko Iordanov tries to unravel the whole context of the play staged by Prince Hamlet in order to expose his uncle’s fratricide.
It is a post-modern insight into the folds of the Shakespearean work, an attempt to fill the empty spaces. The result proposes to the audience a meditation upon the role and destiny of the actor in a totalitarian regime.
