The questions it raises

The universe of the theater, the actors, the essays, the plays and their characters act as a framework for investigating the emotions in people’s daily lives and their inevitable overflows.
The protagonist is a cunning man, a bit twisted but full of sensitivity and desires. What happens when things don’t start to go according to plan? Jealousy and frustration seem to be around the corner.
With corrosive humor and a lot of irony, the sproutimmerses viewers into the world of the performing arts to tell everyone’s story and ask if we are minor characters in our own lives, as well as serve as a tribute to theater and artists.
