But it's quite the powerful play. The strength of the characters and their complex simplicity, the battle of occult knowledge Isabelle trying to talk to and understand death and order the inspector who wants to show everyone spirits don't exist under the eyes of normality the drug store owner, the controller, the little girls etc.

The play reminded me of Faust only in reverse in that the curiosity for death is not an active pursuit but more of a wait that Isabelle has long "waited" to end. She's a big like saint Fatima from Portugal, only in dialogue with death instead of the virgin Mary!!
