A Year Later
This one-act play, written specifically for this renowned pair of actors, retells 30 years from two lives. The text, an original piece by Tony Laudadio, uses fragments to recompose, in 30 flashes from 30 days (one day per year), the story of two people who work in the same office, and are forced to permanently share the same physical place.
Two desks, two employees and a daily alienation which has lasted for 30 years. Microscenes of ordinary office life, the inevitable weaving of desires, frustrations and secrets of two colleagues who are forced to share much of their human existence.
Tony Laudadio (Troisi Prize Award and Girulà Prize Award) has a brilliant, effective dialogue, oscillating between reflection, squabble, sarcasm and an existential story, both bitter and tender, that makes you smile and reflect, thanks to the sparkling and proven on- stage rapport of the two actors.

The misconstructions giving life to the story are both the result of a joyful theatrical taste, and of an entire human pathology: the protagonist, Lelio, with his never-ending lies, triggers a perverse and inexorable mechanism that will ultimately ruin him, violently tearing him away from the society into which he desperately tries to fit.
Four old friends gather around a kitchen table with a deck of cards and fresh coffee. The scenes take place in an old apartment, a refuge where failure is the rule, not the exception . The money is long gone, just like any chance of personal success. As they are about to hit rock bottom, the four friends decide to risk it all, for better or for worse.
