Manalive, a Stage Production
Directed by Otello Cenci, in collaboration with the G. K. Chesterton
Institute for Faith & Culture at Seton Hall University and with the
Rimini production company Made Officina. The adaptation of Chesterton's
novel Manalive will be performed for the first time in Italy on August
19 and 20, at the Ermete Novelli Theatre in Rimini.
Written in 1912, the novel presents itself as a comedy with
well-studied dramatic turns of events, an impeccable style of
conversational theatre, steeped in pungent lines, modeled on
comical-dramatic registers, and with a plot worthy of Shakespeare. It is
a mystery without a murder, but with a real trial that keeps the
reader’s attention alive. Taking center stage is Innocent Smith, a man
who wants to live and who is not satisfied with simply surviving, a man
who is determined to fight against the pervasive nihilism, relativism
and skepticism of his as well as our time.
