maltatoday | SUNDAY • 22 JANUARY 2023 7 THEATRE Spiteri's latest show in their own words Rachel Pecorella Genovese ''Lupu/Nagħġa walks us through an individual's journey in trying to battle an injustice whilst in parallel reminding us of the hypocrisy society is riddled with…ultimately leading us to realise that even those who try to fight injustices will fail, and be- come complacent or worse.'' Franica Pulis ''It's a reflection of our society which suffers from the 'u ija' vice, that anything goes, which unfor- tunately makes corruption thrive in our country.'' Anthony Halldor Mizzi ''Lupu/Nagħġa is a comic-trag- edy that takes a hard look at mod- ern Maltese society on every level. By playing with everything from stereotypes to real events, this satirical play will have you ques- tioning your place in society and whether we're actually as honest as we preach.'' Robyn Vella ''You're out with your friends, dancing, drinking, having a blast, everyone around you is drunk, but you've convinced yourself you're not - you're sober, perhaps just a bit tipsy. You continue danc- ing, you continue laughing, you continue drinking. You go to the bathroom and catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, you look different, everything is distort- ed. You sit on the loo and in that moment reality hits - you're just as drunk as everyone else. That's how I would describe Lupu/ Nagħġa." LUPU/ NAGĦĠA is a Teatru Malta commission for the Euro- pean Theatre Convention as part of the Pipelines project in collab- oration with Du' Theatre, and supported by Arts Council Malta. This production will be presented in Maltese with English surtitles, and taking place between the 27th February and 5th February, 2023.
