STORY: Mathieu, a French guy is in love with Ana, a Serbian girl and wants to propose to her in Serbian language. So he decides to learn Serbian language until their anniversary… in a month. It looks impossible ! And crazy ! He is taking private classes in Belgrade with Brankica, a strict and a bit withdrawn and introvert a teacher. Mathieu is open, straightforward and free spirited. They both have different personalities and temperaments… so a lot of comic situations ensue, communication problems, cultural differences and a mixture of languages will appear and some emotions will occur.
Why this play ? Because I wanted to write something about Serbian language,what it is really like to learn when we don’t know anything about it and when we come from a different country with a different language. I wanted to share my experience and tease it a bit for the sake of a good banter. Because it’s really fun ! I wanted to play with Serbian language as well. So I ‘served myself’ as the French would tend to say . I mean I made use of the opportunity to do so. At the same time, the play is about our comfort zones, especially for the character of Brankica Brankovic, she is a girl who wants to stay home, watch TV with her slippers on and not take any risks in life… and the French guy will unawares help her go out of her comfort zone, grow, and make good decisions for her life.
