“The Last Story” by Kaća Čelan is an award-winning play honored and world premiered in Germany. It was showcased at The Tank in New York City in March 2010.
A duodrama, a war of conversations, exploding phrases ﬁlled with emotions strong like gunpowder - “A verbal therapy” with and against each other, a striking parable of the battle of the sexes develops; its intensity equals a mirror, in which the audience watches itself through the protagonists, “the last Adam and Eve”, who, like a lion and lioness, are caught in the cage called marriage.
The play illustrates the never-ending unavailing quest for paradisiacal harmony between a man and a woman. "The Last Story" is a postmodern European version of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?".
