The Cosmonaut’s Last Message to the Woman He Once Loved in the Former Soviet Union by David Greig will premiere at Cluj-Napoca National Theatre’s opening of the 2010/2011 season.
The curtain fell down for the last time for Esti. And the order wasn’t given by her, from the small technical cabin backstage. The speakers didn’t vibrate anymore at the sound of her words "Thank you the performance!", a saying of hers that always produced a sentimental smile.
