At Some Point We’ll Laugh About This is a stage adaptation of the bestselling Romance Novel (2015) by the Berlinbased contemporary Croatian writer, dramaturg, performer and director Ivana Sajko, commissioned for the Ljubljana City Theatre. The play is a subtle portrayal of the existential plight of young, well-educated people in contemporary post-communist transition society.

The impossibility of finding employment and the precarious struggle for survival prevent young people from becoming financially independent and enjoy living a decent life.

Not only does Sajko analyse the relationship between Her and Him, which is getting increasingly alienated, strained, mutually unforgiving and sometimes openly hostile due to the increasing pressures, she also lucidly portrays the character of the Child, who feels the consequences of parental problems and frustrations. Sajko depicts a society in which the few well-off do not understand the hosts of the poor, while also examining whether the present moment might be the right one for a social revolution and a fairer world order.
