An evening with László Földes Hobo – A musical Calvary in 14 stations. Songs, poems, confessions, stories from the last seventy years
Die and Prosper
Here in the theatre, I can confess everything, no-one will believe a word I say, anyway. Will it be easier afterwards? Like hell it will. What’ll make it easier is the applause: the fact that I can lie left and right and be applauded for it. Or can I tell the truth? They won’t believe it, and it’s just as well, the important thing is that they should clap their hands… That’s what’s good about the theatre. I can be everything here, including myself, they won’t believe it anyway. Then why should I lie? It’s not easy, it’s hard work, you have to make it all up, then write it down, learn it, and pretend as though…,” says Hobo.
