“Sidran's novel is a kind of "Amarcord" of our region. A seventeen-year-old boy will learn about two great phenomena during school holidays - love and communism. The boy will emerge from the turbulent events of that summer as a young man who learned that both love and communism are just disappointing faces of two great concepts, faces whose shadow will leave catastrophic consequences on his generation a few decades later. It's been almost forty years since the film "Do You Remember Dolly Bell"? The country in which the film was made no longer exists. The city where the action takes place is no longer the same. In our play, the former boy Dino, in his advanced years, returns to the city of his youth, looking for his own "better past". It is a framework that will allow us an almost Marquez story. Every return to childhood, to youth, is a return to fiction. Passed through the prism of our memory, characters and events do not have their real forms, but their final character shapes the impression we have taken of them after all.”
