42. Theatre

42nd Theater Group is an independent theater company, founded in 2015, Budapest. There are young entrant actors and artists in the company, their goal is to find new ways of expression and talking about effectual questions of the world and our society. They are currently working on a new performance, which is based on a novel written by Slawomir Mrozek, House on the board.








based on a novel of John Osborne 




Based on the play Look back in Anger by John Osborne, Összkomfort („With all modern conveniences”) addresses the society, that we are also living in, where we all try to create our  home „with all modern conveniences.”

The performance, as the rewriters (the director and the actors) of the play would say, is a „dollhouse” for adults.

 How can three adults live together in a decayed, small flat in Budapest, thrown back on each other? How can we be happy, if despite of all our dreams, we are still stuck in our 20s and 30s, without existence and prospects? How can we survive in a society, where the young generation has no space, energy and even spirit to change?

based on the novel of Arni Ibsen


Would you be happy to have a grill with your friends in the garden of your vacation house? And how would it sound to go out with the hottest girl of the gang? Would you like to drink beer with your boddies in the pool? Sounds like Heaven, huh? 

But if you have borrowed the car and the house from your Daddy and your girl is interested in her ex more then in you; you get embarrassing sentences from your old mates and you have no idea where and with whom have you spent the night…then maybe, it sounds more like Heaven, backwords.

The performance is based on the play of the contemporary palywright, Arni Ibsen. A true comedy about the lost and found „akward age”, in one act, but twice.

One house. 6 persons, in their mid 20s. And you.

You are either in or out.

Are you in? Or out?

Are you?

Absurd play inspired by Sławomir Mrożek’s „The House on the Border”.

A fusional theatre performance with slam poetry, live music and film projection.

A middle-class family’s house raided by an undefined authority during dinner: diplomats take over and immediately ruin the harmony of the family. A border separates the living room, the house is split into two different country. Mrożek’s sketch of a distopia was an answer for the cold war era and the atomic threat yet it’s quite an imaginable reality for our present and near future. Seems like history is eager as never to knock on our doors and turn everything on its head.

What is a border? A line that divides me from you? Or a country from its neighbours? The elite from masses? Inhabitants from migrants? A conscious mind from insanity? A laughter from freak?

After all, we’re all just comedians. And our rite du passage is to cross borders.
