Dacia Maraini
Maria Stuarda e altre commedie (Mary Stuart and Other Comedies)
Rizzoli 2001, 112 pages

“Although Mary Stuart was named after a woman, women were not very present in Schiller’s famous text. So I thought about reversing the whole story, multiplying the female roles, to describe the relationship between women and their different attitude towards power.”

In this volume the literary instrument becomes a method of investigation on the female universe. But the path in the theatrical writing of Dacia Maraini is enriched with other stories, in the staging of ordinary and extraordinary existences: the human drama of three generations, a grandmother, a mother, a daughter, in Mela; the last period of captivity of the revolutionary Eleonora Fonseca Pimentel in Donna Lionora giacubina; the impossible return to normal life of five former patients of a psychiatric hospital in Stravaganze; and the fragments of humanity caught in A train, one night. Dacia Maraini captures moments of life that become essential moments of truth.
