A Log on the Motorway An arbitrary play about the hollowness of appearance and absence of meaning
The debut play by Iza Strehar offers a fresh perspective on ethical disorientation of young intellectuals. It opens questions about the meaning of love and partnership, about the boundaries of personal freedom and about integrity at the age of almost thirty. Should one be coming up with options to make the world better or should one rather accept the given circumstances and focus on their own career and family? Should one insist on principles or give in to the ease of a conformist position? The play’s protagonist Zoja walks close to the edge when she is facing these dilemmas as she won’t accept the hollowness of appearance and absence of meaning. Her searching for answers harms not only her close relationships but also her mental health.
