Anna at La Mama
1950s Bulgaria. Stalin is in power. The door bell rings. The typewriters of the secret service tap, recording lives. This woman lives alone and writes stories; ogres, princesses, myths. Her reality is more frightening than her stories. There is nowhere to go where they are not watching. Tap, tap. A room of secrets and files. They mount up over the years and dust gathers. It’s hard to find out what is true, what is a lie.
