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.
