It's difficult being young and in love when your Dad is a high ranking official in Ceausescu's communist machine, your mother weeps all the time and your brother is trying to kill you. This wild and sideways look at life behind the Iron Curtain during Ceausescu's regime is a first play by a young Hungarian writer living in Romania and was shortlisted for the BBC World Service/British Council's International Playwriting Competition. Starring Freddy White, Michael Begley, Jane Whittenshaw, Julia Tarnoky, Brian Bowles, Daniel Rabin, and Luke Newberry. Director: Marion Nancarrow.

I used to be the cultural editor of a weekly magazine, then cultural editor at the local radio station. Now I'm just a writer. I'm also a translator (from Romanian and English to Hungarian) always looking for a job. I write movie reviews and book reviews too. I'm not famous".
