Roberto Zucco
Roberto Zucco is a drama of existential revolt, the last text of the great French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès, who died of AIDS shortly after completing the script. The play follows a rebel driven to commit terrible crimes, seemingly without motive, and depicts the social order that creates him. In a series of poetic, fast-moving scenes, Koltès takes his chameleon-like anti-hero on a mythical journey through a landscape of strange and violent beauty.
