The Blue One

7.5
There is this kind of cow - the Latvian blue, and that is the blue in this play. Actually I`ve never seen a blue cow, only on a picture but some people tell me that they do in fact exist. Anyhow, there`s this fellow George who had a terrible accident on a road when he was driving a car when his dad and grandma were killed. Now he`s with his mom Rasma in Georgia, having a long time vacation and curing. Before the accident he had stopped the car to look at a blue cow, and now he`s searching in Latvian folklore for those cows. He is visited by a female friend of his, Linda, and her new twice-her-age lover Vidvuds. But his mom has problems with Linda. Anyhow, the main idea of the play probably is that children who don`t need anything are too spoiled and usually don`t know what they want. So, for a Latvian play it was quite good, I watched it in a very small place - something like 40 people were there, acting was good from 3 of 4 actors but Rasma was a bit over-the-top in my opinion. But it was still pretty good, and at least I didn`t get bored at all.

Bezkaunīgie veči

6.5
Es nevaru ne noliegt, ne apstiprināt, ka "Bezkaunīgos večus" esmu deviņdesmito gadu vidū redzējis klātienē teātrī. Pilnīgi noteikti esmu redzējis šīs izrādes fragmentus, kuri bija iekļauti kaut kādā Nacionālā teātra popūrijā (iespējams, tā bija viena no pirmajām "Teātra žurkām", bet varu arī kļūdīties), kaut kādas ainas un personāžus pat pārsteidzošā kārtā atcerējos, bet vai biju ar vecākiem arī uz pašu izrādi... drīzāk es teiktu, ka nē, bet dokumentālu pierādījumu trūkst (it īpaši, ja ņem vērā to, ka dokumentāli pierādījumi šajā virzienā nav īsti iespējami).
