It is about depression or what we are willing to do for those we love.


The mother of a seven-year-old girl is suicidal. “It was something completely stupid, something that happens when one can not be happy with anything,” she told her. The little girl who wants to help his mother starts a list of every wonderful thing in the world for which one deserves to live. An adult now comes to tell her story, motivating the audience to play the other characters of her life.

The author’s instructions are clear:  an actor facing his audience, a single lighting, no scene change, the text’s identification with the age and the actor’s experiences, and a complete adaptation of the cultural elements of the country where the work is presented . This is the only way that all the colors of this interactive and stripped down theatrical experience bloom.

★★★★ The Guardian
‘Entertaining, hilarious … maybe one of the funniest projects you’ll ever see.’

★★★★ The Telegraph
‘Funny, smart, unexpected animator.’

★★★★ Time Out London
“Overwhelming … beautiful, touching. And very funny. ”

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
