Based the Soviet-era farce The Suicide by the Russian writer Nikolai Erdman, and adapted by Eamon Flack and the company, Belvoir’s Sami in Paradise introduces its audience to a man who has lived in a camp so long he can barely remember his real home.
Sami is a bit of a dreamer, a bit of a clown. One night he wakes up at the end of his tether. He stakes his dignity on learning the tuba, little knowing he’s set off down the path to his own funeral party.
Paula Arundell, Fayssal Bazzi, Charlie Garber and Yalin Ozucelik feature.
