  3. The Boy in the Last Row

A high school teacher corrects the test papers he gave his students, papers with the title ‘How I spent my last weekend'. Every test paper appears to be worse than the one before. That is until he gets to the silent boy's paper, who sits in the last row. The teacher reads it a few times so he can make sure his eyes did not deceive him. Starting from this surprising composition, between the adult and the young boy forms a relationship that is both profound and dangerous. It is harmful for them and for those around them. The boy in the last row is a play about masters and disciples; about parents and children; about people who have seen too much and people who learn to look. It is a play about the pleasure of interfering in the life of others and about the risk of mistaking life with literature. It is a play about those who choose to sit in the back of the class: the place from where everything else can be seen.
