The Escape

Writer: Attila Gérecz
The Escape

Monodrama based on the poems of Attila Gérecz.

Director: László Csuja

Attila Gérecz was imprisoned for political reasons in the age of 21. In the summer of 1954 he swam across the Danube and flew home to his lover. He documented the escape in a poem, which gives the basis for the monodrama. Through the performance we can get closer to the soul of a man who was never broken by the system.
