(22 November 1964 - 7 September 2014)


The actress Vasilica Stamatin left this world way too soon, following a long and hard suffering.

Born in 1964 in Piatra Neamţ, Vasilica Stamatin graduated from the Târgu-Mureş Theatre Institute, class of 1988.

In 1999 she became an actress of the Cluj-Napoca National Theatre, an institution she devotedly served until the end of 2010.  

Intelligent, with a witty spirit, cheerful, trusted comrade, Vasilica Stamatin completed her theoretical studies by graduating from, and also successfully obtaining her PhD at, the Faculty of Psychology.

In the two decades she acted on the stage of the Cluj Napoca National Theatre, she portrayed a diverse array of characters, in both comedy and drama. Here are a few of her most memorable roles: The Fiancé in Personality transfer byD. Solomon, Mommina in Tonight we improvise by Luigi Pirandello, Mrs. Ford in Falstaff, based on W. Shakespeare, Hermia in A Midsummer Nights Dream by W. Shakespeare, Judith in Boeing-Boeing by Marc Camoletti, The Doctor in The Colonel Bird by Hristo Boytchev, Duniasha in The Cherry Orchard Sequel by Nic Ularu, Gillian/Deidre in RocknRoll by Tom Stoppard, in collaboration with important directors such as Alexandru Dabija, V.I. Frunză, Anca Bradu, Mihai Măniuţiu, Andrei Şerban.

The part of Toinette in The Imaginary Invalid by Molière, directed by Sanda Manu, was one of her most beloved parts, keeping her close to her audience for many years.

Now that we must part, we, her colleagues, want to bid her farewell. Her memory will remain alive in our souls in the souls of those that admired her.


May she rest in peace!

The performance God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated in Romanian by Tudor Ţepeneag, will open Thursday, 24 July 2014, at 7pm. Directed by Cristian Hadji-Culea, designed by: Valentin Codoiu, assistant designer: Cătălina Chirilă. Cast: Irina Wintze, Marian Râlea, Diana Buluga, Miron Maxim.

God of Carnage / Le Dieu du carnage was written in 2006. Jurgen Gösch staged it at the Schauspielhaus in Zürich, and then the author herself directed the production of the play at the Antoine Theatre from Paris, with the following cast: Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Valérie Bonneton and Éric Elmosnino. Roman Polanski’s film, Carnage, based on a script designed by the playwright herself and for which she won the award for best film adaptation at the 2011 edition of the Cannes Film Festival, contributed to her fame. The film had a prestigious cast: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz. For her plays, the author received important awards such as the Laurence Olivier Award (UK) and the Tony Award (USA).

In the living-room of the Houllié family, a room full of books and with pictures depicting an African war zone on the wall, the Reille family arrives, invited to discuss a seemingly unimportant event: Ferdinand, the child of the Reille family, damaged the front teeth of Bruno, the boy of the Houllié family. The encounter starts in a civilized manner, as dictated by social conventions, only to degenerate in a frantic, yet bitterly amusing, confrontation between the two couples, which reveals all the frustrations of married life.
