Paolo Cioni
The Successful Son

“The Successful Son” is the story of a man who goes to renew his identity card at the City Hall and comes out transformed, like the heroes of myths.
But here we are in Pisa… So we can say that it is above all the sweet and somewhat ruthless tale of an ordinary son experiencing his personal existential catharsis within his own family. On stage flow, in the words and in the body of the protagonist who goes through them,
the most significant episodes of ordinary, and commonly lived lives at the mercy of events.
But the play is also an attempt to answer an almost anthropological curiosity: when the specter of the disease with the most angular and evocative name of misfortune of our times, Alzheimer’s, creeps into a family, what happens in those who are overwhelmed by it?
In our case, every point of reference seems to dissolve and each person deploys his or her own personal survival strategies, the reality that was so familiar warps taking a surreal and grotesque turn,
in which the protagonist moves around awkwardly trying to find a balance.
