Hadi Kurić, as the playwright, and Irfan Mensur, as the director, created this play where the main character is a great actor and seducer Edmund Kean. Alexandre Dumas père and Pol Sartre also wrote about this interesting historical personality. But in his play, Hadi Kurić focused primarily on the motive of rebellion, not on the love affair. There is neither a true love story nor a good dramatic plot without someone’s rebellion. An exciting, inspiring and wonderful story about actors, in which Kean, a romantic, an eccentric, a junkie, an alcoholic, and a hero fights for all those ideals and values that are forgotten and neglected even today.
The FIRST performance of „Edmund Kean” was a huge success at the premier at the National Theatre in Niš. The role of a glorious English actor whom they „believe to be a king, when he plays the king, and a fisherman, when he plays the fisherman”, but who remains outside of social norms, is entrusted to Dejan Cicmilović. The actors, in this witty portrait of the eternal volatile acting fate are Aleksandar Marinković, Sanja Krstović, Milena Jakšić, Snežana Petrović and Aleksandar Mihailović
