By Arthur Miller. 1985
A masterful mix of art, sex, and politics behind the Iron Curtain, by America's greatest dramatist In an unnamed Eastern… European capital, four writers gather in what was once an archbishop's palace. There is Adrian, a successful American author struggling with questions about a novel he has set in the city, and Marcus, a once-imprisoned radical who has become a darling of the current regime. Finally, there is Sigmund, perhaps the country's greatest living writer, who refuses to compromise his artistic integrity to appease the regime. Between them all is Maya, a poet and actress who has been a mistress and muse to each man. The ornately decorated ceiling above them may or may not be bugged, and the group carefully watches their words as they discuss the play's central dilemma - should Sigmund stay and resist the oppressive state, or should he defect and pursue his art in freedom? Their conversation poses crucial questions about mass surveillance, morality, and the authenticity of art, and remains as relevant today as it was during the height of the Cold War.

Salt Nessuno sent le urla precedenti ma solo l impatto del suo corpo contro… il marciapiede Tutti guardarono il suo corpo inerte a terra Una pozza cremisi tinse i suoi vestiti Era cos buona dicevano tra le lacrime fresche Si meritava il cielo si lamentavano Ma avevano reso la sua vita un inferno Ignorando tutte le sue grida annullando la sua essenza e censurando le sue parole Ignorata in vita Non c nessun altra come Nebun infelice e tradita dalla vita accompagnata dall indifferenza e abbandonata da chi l ascoltava Cos inizia la sua avventura verso la libert ma la sfortuna la persegue e rimane intrappolata a met strada Da sola pi sola che mai O forse no

By Arthur Miller. 1992
A bold, vibrant panorama of the Great Depression by "the moral voice of the American stage" (The New York Times)… Capturing a cross-section of American life in the throes of the Great Depression, The American Clock presents what Miller called "a mural for theatre," based loosely on Stud's Terkel's oral history, Hard Times. It is the story of a single family, Moe and Rose Baum and their son Lee, who lost everything in the crash of '29. When Lee leaves Brooklyn and travels west in search of work, he comes face to face with the true scope of the Depression's devastation and encounters a tapestry of interlocked stories unfolding across a nation in crisis. In a series of vignettes, a vast ensemble of characters sets the Baums' struggles in relief: a shoeshine man, a corporate tycoon, a dispossessed farmer, a struggling prostitute, a young songwriter, and a communist comic-strip artist, among many disparate American identities. All the while, the clock ticks towards a new era in history, and time is running out for the Baums and the America they know.

“Saltò. Nessuno sentì le urla precedenti, ma solo l'impatto del suo corpo contro il marciapiede. Tutti guardarono il suo corpo… inerte a terra. Una pozza cremisi tinse i suoi vestiti. «Era così buona» dicevano tra le lacrime fresche. «Si meritava il cielo», si lamentavano. Ma avevano reso la sua vita un inferno. Ignorando tutte le sue grida, annullando la sua essenza e censurando le sue parole. Ignorata in vita.” Non c'è nessun’altra come Nebun ... infelice e tradita dalla vita; accompagnata dall’indifferenza e abbandonata da chi l’ascoltava. Così inizia la sua avventura verso la libertà, ma la sfortuna la persegue e rimane intrappolata a metà strada. Da sola, più sola che mai. O forse no.

"Pulou. Ninguém escutou os gritos prévios, apenas o impacto do seu corpo contra o pavimento. Ali, todos olhavam seu corpo… desfigurado no chão. Uma poça carmesim tingiu sua roupa. «Era tão boa» diziam entre lágrimas frescas. «Merecia o céu», lamentavam-se. Porém, de sua vida, haviam feito umo inferno. Ignorando seus gritos prévios, anulando sua essência e censurando suas palavras. Ignorada em vida." Não existe outra como Nebun... infeliz e traída pela vida; acompanhada pela indiferença e abandonada por quem a escutava. Inicia assim a sua aventura até a liberdade, porém, a desgraça a persegue atrapalha boa parte do caminho. Sozinha, mais sozinha do que nunca antes. Ou quem sabe nem tanto.
