What about Leonardo?

Year of writing: 1992
"The current human condition is such that the sense of intuition and the sense of feeling have drifted from conscience into the subconscious, and so humans connect to the environment only via their sense of thought and this sense is labelled as ‘me’.”
Total cast size: 13 (5 f, 8 m)
drama, tragicomedy
ethical dilemmas, scientists, absurd, mental illness

The action is set in a psychiatric institution where scientists (in this case dr Hoffman and dr DaSilva) try to help patients suffering from a variety of issues and symptoms to find their way back into ‘normality’. The central question of the play is what makes us what we are and when and why does it sometimes occur that the environment or the society, fuelled by greed, simply ‘consumes’ certain individuals. The play touches on the questions of ethics and responsibility.
