THE PLAY: It is thirsday night, 3 guys try to cut the strings that have held them back for a long time, with the help (and obsticles) of intoxication, women and irresistable music. A dead cat, a disco night that never happened, the breasts of an assistant at the unemployment office and headless doves are turning points in this human journey through masculinity.

THE MUSIC: The play is 3 monologues where 3 very different individuals tell us their story of this fateful night. I am on the stage the whole time and play the music live. A very fun and educating project where I need to learn the whole text and the moves and rhythm of speech by each actor, and concentrate on getting the right mood and dynamics.
