In the play DUST the subject is simple: the husband (the head of the family struggling to survive from a financial point of view) wins the jackpot in the Lotto. The happy event gradually becomes a "nuisance", through the various assumptions, with negative valences, of the wife.
Finally, the destabilization produced by the incredible luck is stopped by burning the ticket in question. These turned the long and hardened habits of the protagonists, played by Petrişor Stan and Doina Aida Stan, upside down.
The stage transposition of such a drama involves a special acting effort and a directorial vision according to which the text acquires a theatricality whose support is the natural experience, in its varied and subtle nuances, of the unexpected event.
The effects of the show consist in the surprising transitions from the husbands' realistic plans, related to the administration of the incredible amount of money, to the utopian ones and, at the same time, the laughs, through their dose of naivety.
