The play 69 deals with the incompatibility of present-day morality and worldview with the stable Christian norm and trust in unalterable values and authentic truths. This is a play for human culture’s attitudes towards reliable and secure moral principles that fail to match today’s moral relativism and lack of genuineness. “Cannibalism” is the mode of our post-modern existence; our identity is a feeble medley of devoured ready-made sentences, someone else’s experiences and emotions: “to eat or to be eaten: is it not as if everything has already happened before?” Employing a criminal story about a cannibal and her victims the text speaks of contemporary human being having lost its pivot, sense and worth and of its endless hardships while wandering about amidst the effaced milestones.
