Coproduction of the National Theater in Nis and Hartefact Fund
About the play – Tisa Milic
The play ” October 6 (a story about one summer vacation)” talks about the twentieth anniversary of the events that marked the political scene in Serbia in October 2000. The main characters are members of a family of four who head out on a long-awaited summer vacation to Greece by car. Along the way, they encounter a series of obstacles and entanglements, while mutual disagreements, differences and latencies come to light.
The basic conflict is the conflict of different ideologies and the struggle for the word and supremacy in the family hierarchy. Torn between desires and possibilities, the heroes re-examine their relationships, beliefs and past, while resources slowly disappear, and their goal becomes a pale point in the distance that seems to move further and further as they try to get closer to it.

A word from the Director – Andrej Nosov
This is a story about a summer vacation. About hope that it might get better. This is a story about a birthday. About family. About a car that was supposed to solve our future.
Twenty years later, we are just angry, hope went astray somewhere. So lost, we wander between different signs and phenomena. There are no mirrors, and rebellion is just a form of avoiding responsibility. When no one is to blame, nothing happens either.
Until the next celebration.
