By the second act, the public was engaged with the play and laughs started to be heard. Contrasting with the calm starting of the initial act, the rest of the play got in a fast rhythm and amusing one. Only by the middle of the second act, a baby woke up and started to cry. The text is mainly based on Woody Allen’s play God (A Play), with small sketches inspired on A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. Two Greek Goddesses, a dramaturgical author searching for immortality and innumerous other characters just add to the confusion following the method of decomposition and reconstruction of the dramatic act used by Damien Poinsard. On a quest for the truth, all this different references engage with hilarious moments trying to find a solution that ultimately satisfies the author. Everyone is entitled to its own truth but ultimately it is God’s will that predominates in La God Maschine.
Questions like the immortality of the author, what is real, what is the truth, were being thrown throughout the play but the main reason for everybody to be there was not to think about it. For some theatre it isn’t. The main purpose is entertainment, the experience of a collective moment of joy and, if because of what we are listening, watching, feeling with that experience, we can still think for a moment, the great message was delivered. What better than learning with joy? As it was said in the play, for other messages we have the Deutsche Post.
