Unlike the family Topalovic from the play THE MARATHON FAMILY, who have been reselling the same coffins for decades but staying within the small confines of the family business, their close relatives, the protagonists of the play DRESS REHEARSAL FOR A SUICIDE, three eccentric brothers, the captain of a river boat, controversial businessman and crazy psychiatrist, regardless of the fact whether they are who they claim to be, are involved in big international affairs, human and organ trafficking of the people whose suicidal plans they have disrupted.

On the other hand, the modernisation of the old issue has not only forced the author to give up his previous obsessions of describing the specificities of Serbia as the place of the action, but has also made him create a funny and quintessentially metonymic image of the modern world facing the drawbacks of the globalisation process.
