20 Minutes With The Angel

The performance also alludes to the sins of the world, attributing to each character a passion that dominates and erodes the soul: Ugarov and Anciughin represent immorality, a life led to meet the primary needs, without having any desire to evolve from a spiritual point of view, Bazilski, the pride that makes you think that there is no one else quite like you in the world and despise the others, Vasiuta, the love of silvers, coming from a background that had nothing else to offered but a miserable profession and no love, and Stupak is hypocrisy, being a man who uses love to obtain money, and through deception and manipulation he hopes to obtain other privileges. All these ardours, very present in the hearts of the characters, darken and prevent them from perfecting themselves spiritually.

Unfulfillment  is an important subject that is brought to light by this show. Ratarer is a painful experience. Failures to reach his dreams and become what he thinks he was meant to become, makes people very cruel , brutal, and hatred between them. Rather sometimes invites us to learn modesty and humility, but these things can not exist when pride leads our lives. When we do not feel fulfilled we always blame others, life, luck, God, not us. Sometimes we are not guilty; on the contrary, we are victims, people with exceptional qualities who have not been appreciated to the right value. Damage is not always bad and does not mean it is permanent. Life always gives you an opportunity to get up, just have your heart clean enough to be able to recognise the divine signs.

The play presents a world without love. This is regarded as something out of the ordinary, naive, and it is just one of the means to reach your goal. A loveless world is a sick world, a world that struggles in an endless darkness. God is good and sometimes sends us signals to come back on the right path, but evil is so deeply rooted within us that we do not see and hear his attempts to save us. The arrival of the Angel into the lives of the two drunkards produces panic, not joy. The meeting with the Angel does not enlighten them, but it awakens their primary instincts. The angel must immediately be reduced to silence, as it represents a disruptive factor that risks destroying the harmony of their miserable life. The herd effect is a constant of our lives. Whoever is different from us becomes dangerous and must be marginalised and then removed as soon as possible. People are often deprived of personality, and don’t have the courage to backup their own opinions. Sometimes we think something, but we say something else. The society is the one that smothers  our feelings and teaches us not to be ourselves but to become what the society needs us to be. Defending the Angel becomes an act of great courage. The Faina character pays dearly his unconsciousness of opposing the crowd, her attitude only irritates even more and amplifies the aggressiveness of the other characters.
The ending of the play surprises with optimism and hope. People’s awareness, how small, awakens and for a few moments their souls shine. People can change, but they have to want that change its their lives. God helps us but does not intervene in free will. He loves us so much that it leaves us the freedom to choose. In life, it is important to distinguish between Good and Evil, but it is even more important to choose Good.
