Life is not organized around a coherent narrative, despite how much we would like it to be. Life can be messy, jumpy, nonlinear, fragmentary and discordant, and we might find ourselves desperately trying to make sense out of it. “Tales of the Lost Formicans” reflects this messiness and the effort to make sense of it, both in its content and in its form.

It seems as if all characters are struggling through a crisis of this sort or another. Within the turmoil of their lives, all characters try to find something to hold on to, something that will serve as a solid ground to walk on. However, this is “a play that is too honest to propose any univocal explanation for the confusions of the day, or any instant remedy for them”, as was written in a review in the L.A. Times in 1989.

By Constance Congdon. Directed by Yagil Eliraz.
