The playwright and director Victoria Szpunberg is bringing her latest text to the stage, a social portrait that poses with some irony what is ethically appropriate in a system that drowns you.

Clara G., an associate professor of ethics at the Faculty of Philosophy, is in crisis. After fifty, recently separated, unable to get a place in the university and about to be homeless, she begins to suffer strange attacks. She often faints, she hears persistent noises, she is invaded by dark, paranoid thoughts. Clara G. has been part of the system, but she is increasingly cornered, getting closer to the margin. She drifts, encountering several men, until his ethical compass is straightened by a chance find: a fabulously sharp kitchen knife.
What should be the pattern of her behaviour in an increasingly hostile environment? What are the ethical boundaries of a system that can only survive at the cost of the misery of others?
