saw the play in April 2019, I read the poetry by Fikret Demirağ, the poet, the
play is based on, I read it in English and I want to share it with my readers,
the play had touched me deeply.
Ersoy has now brought the details together, so that this play gets not
forgotten, that the words and thoughts of the poet, the way Yaşar Ersoy, who
developed the play, brought it on stage, with the pain, the reflections on
humanity, on human stupidity and stubbornness, the possibility of a human
solution…. The play was brought on stage to celebrate the 50th
birthday of the Lefkoşa Belediye Tiyatrosu.
books contains introductions by HE Mustafa Akincı, by the Nicosia Mayor Mehmet
Harmancı, both important figures in the support of the Nicosia Municipality
Theatre, and thoughts and reviews by poets, writers, artists and critics and
journalists. I feel honoured that Yaşar Ersoy has included my text in this
scenes and pictures are shown in the book, scenes that were spoken live on the
evening of presentation in the MOD Café, a new place just next to Hamur
Restaurant, with a garden space along the maut. A very emotional evening, the
moon above, some politicians also listening attentively to the extracts of the
play spoken by Yaşar Ersoy, Erol Refikoğlu, and the actresses Özgür Oktay, Döndü
Özata, Melihat Melis Beşe.
