“Cinderellas Ltd.” is the new text by Zdrava Kamenova and Gergana Dimitrova who won 2012 IKAR Award for best dramatic text for their play “PO BOX Unabomber”. It teasingly and naturally entangles the monologues and stories of three women on the verge of middle age. They have different occupations and marital status, they come from different countries and speak different languages but nevertheless the similarities far outnumber the differences. Why does woman’s life in contemporary society seem so complex, and does she suffer from the so called “Cinderella complex”, i.e. what psychology describes as “fear of one’s own independence”? What rituals will help her today to find herself and attain her quite simple desires unchanged by time? The real-life biographies of the three actors were used to write the text. Thus, unexpectedly at first sight, the three female characters are recreated on the stage by male actors. It is one of the successful international co-productions of the contemporary independent scene, which feels like a fresh, original and deeply self-ironic psychotherapy.
