Drivers is a special play for it belongs to different traditions at the same time. On the one hand, it is based on the comedy genre full of agents, cops, and spies. These drama characters see the world as if they were in the shoes of Alexa Punji, Luka Laban and Sika Akola. On the other hand, Driers come from the Central European tradition of the Theater of the Absurd, painted in the works of Slawomir Mrožek, Vaclav Havel and Istvan Orkeny, but also of one specific and popular form of satire known as the “Budapest Joke”. The action of the drama was originally set in 1974, while the play changes that, now distant and forgotten past, with the dystopian world of the very near future.
