What Do You Say
Written & Directed by Faik Ertener
Assistant Director Tunç Günbay
Faik Ertener's play "What do you say" is about the adventure of a person who is unhappy with himself and his position, trying to be someone else…
The story of a man who tried to become a Lion to be the strongest, then realized he can not live in captivity and became an Eagle, but was tired of hunting and tried not to hunt, then the Sun, but when the light stopped, he decided to become a Cloud, but could not resist the wind, and finally decided to become a Mountain... And how long can a person endure being a mountain? Or how will he realize that the most powerful asset he possesses is his own talent, willpower, and fighting tenacity?
This is a really joyful and festive play where you must find solutions to all of these questions; It will be performed in the Istanbul State Theaters between 2019-2020, and will meet its audience on stage this time.
You wanted to be the strongest. You sought the strong…
You didn't like yourself, you became a lion and were chained...
You said eagle, you lost your wing...
You became the sun, you became a cloud…
You were thrown into the wind…
You became a mountain… But you could not become what you should have been…
How about you, kids? What do you believe is the most powerful thing on Earth?
