Ptk from the green room 361x600

In theatres or studios the “green room” was supposed to function as a waiting room for the actor before entering the stage.

As far as I know “The Green Room” is the first play which enhances, praises and glorifies Procrastination…

Written under the form of a monologue, this subject which could have been dry and un-inspirational is in fact fascinating. The heroine, standing in front of a beautiful stage set flooded with green light, proves to us that this is the only way to stretch out time, therefore to push Death away…

So is the procrastinator the last knight of this modern time?

Read this play, better still try to see it on stage and you might be won over by the theory of the playwright…of course that is if you don’t put this pleasure off!
