Dusan Kovacevic
A word by the author and director

… The play THE BEST PEOPLE (KUMOVI) is an unusual story about a friendship between a man who has lost his job and a dog from a nearby park, which also does not have a job. The story starts in an ordinary way, like all the stories that later go on to be more complicated and get a completely new meaning. This is, basically, a thriller, and I do not want to retell it because I might inadvertently reveal who the killer is. What I was interested in while writing the text is the current economic and political situation in Serbia. However, it is not told in that ordinary play-politics manner that only has its effect and value while the political issue is current.
