Project achieved within the programme Open Doors to Everyone.

Designated by the New York Times one of the most intelligent comedy of manners, „Loose Knit” is a play abundant in witty, sarcastic and incredibly funny dialogues.

Five friends frequently meet to knit; these knitting parties are, actually, but a mere pretext for talks about the men from their lives or, moreover, about the lack thereof. The humour of these ladies partially conceals a dark picture in which relationships between people develop as difficult as they loosen, like the knitted fabrics which the protagonists of the play create.

„I am a woman, an American, a mother, sometimes I write for the television, sometimes I write movie scripts; I play the piano, I knit, I snap at the universe; I am furious, I am sad; I have a fibre of a comical realism, but also a note of misanthropy and idealism. You can classify both me and my work in many ways. But me, personally, I would rather be considered a playwright.” Theresa Rebeck
