The Deer Hunter


> Intro

The Deer Hunter is a play slightly inspired by Michael Cimino’s film of the same name that premiered at Theatre NO99 in October 2006. More than three years have passed since its last performance yet this play has never been removed from the theatre’s repertoire. It simply has not been performed for a long time. The stage set was preserved, the costumes are clean and the theatre waited for the right moment to come together and perform this play for one last time. That moment has arrived now.

This stage production by Tiit Ojasoo and Ene-Liis Semper is a story about people from a small town who have to make major choices. Life, love, death and friendship no longer sound hollow when simple people think about them. They think about them because all these things are here and now, and inevitable. And if you are still in your late 20s or early 30s, your crust is perhaps still sufficiently thin to perceive all these momentous things directly and sharply. Some go insane, some persevere, yet some continue to long for happiness and peaceful Sundays.
