About the show

Fatelessness is considered one of the most outstanding works of contemporary European literature and now, for the first time, the stage version of the novel is perphormed by Hungarian actor Adam Boncz, who is the first to have the rights to adapt the novel to the American stage. Fatelessness is a testimonial about facing a new identity after any kind of tragedy, and inspires audiences to reflect on their future by remembering their past.

The collaboration of international artists including New York director Gia Forakis, award-winning playwright and dramaturg András Visky
(Cluj-Napoca Hungarian Theatre in Romania) and Hungarian composer Balint Varga will result in a stylized performance interweaving music, images, and video from the story’s era.
