Come face-to-face with corruption and dishonesty in the chaotic aftermath of the Second World War in black comedy, Inner Voices, at the Barbican.
When the hero Alberto manages to confuse a dream with reality, he ends up accusing the family next door of having committed murder. His accusations start a series of misunderstandings that lead to disastrous events, turning the beleaguered family members against one another, as suspicion sets in and chaos reigns.
A classic of the Italian stage, this mischievously funny work by Italian playwright, author and poet Eduardo De Fillipo transcends time with its universal themes and perfectly pitched black comedy.
Performed in Italian with English subtitles, this gripping look at post-war Italy is directed by Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty and Il Divo).
