Current Status? Resident at the Center of Educational Theatre Replika – Bucharest   MONSTER is a performance that unceremoniously reveals a raw reality, without telling you what to do with it. It just presses the right buttons that switch your conscience on.   An intense show on a contemporary, rough, and smart text that tackles a modern and sensitive theme, aiming to unbenumb a feeling already present in our DNA – empathy.   A timely and gripping dissection of parenting and responsibility and that moment when teenagers stopped being seen as young people in need of adult support and protection and began to be viewed as a problem. Most of all, this is a play about hope and the damage you do to yourself and others when you lose it. – The Guardian
