Bed of Nails

Bed of Nails

Bed of Nails, subtitled Little Lear from the VeliVaroš Neighbourhood, in Bošnjak’s subtle, strong and touching way, represents a certain replica of the Shakespeare’s King Lear, telling us story about a family from Veli Varoš Neighbourhood, story about a three-floor house made of stone, about a fig tree and a cheerful party celebrating birthday of the oldest member of the family - the father who that very day decides to divide his miserable realm amongst his family. Inheritance, whether it is royal or destitute, always leaves room for drama.

Dramatic writing of Elvis Bošnjak remains within the domain he knows the best, taking his inspiration from the classics in order to provide fateful severity to local colours while at the same time he is using humour to cut it the ground out from under their feet. Little Lear from Veli Varoš Neighbourhood, as subtitled, is exactly that: great story about world view minimised to local and family level still big enough for everybody to be understood regardless the meridians and parallels.
