For the first time in Bulgaria, renowned actor Ivaylo Christov, now a well-established director, stages Honour, a play by Joanna Murray-Smith, one of the most popular Australian writers. Sharp, witty and gracious, the play delicately and courageously explores the ordeal of a broken family.
Honor and George have been married for 32 years. They are both critically acclaimed authors, yet poetry in Honor’s life has given way to her devotion as a wife and mother. The world seems to be on the verge of collapse when one of the characters seizes the opportunity of a new life at the expense of the family’s happiness and security.
Ivaylo Hristov’s performance creates an absorbingly intimate environment and outlines the urgency of the situation, putting an emphasis on human vulnerability and loss as a life ordeal, as these emerge as the play’s main theme. A superb cast of actors that makes a lasting impact by performing a range of subtle emotional states and a twist of vicissitudes.
