With this premise these two playhouses approached ''Kvetch'' and created a performance perhaps untypical for their respective theatres. When a certain play becomes the longest running comedy in a theatrical centre such as Los Angeles, than it definitely deserves our full attention. ''Kvetch'', a play by Steven Berkoff, one of the best known contemporary British playwrights, a director and an actor, won many awards and recognitions including the latter one. The theatre-goers in Zagreb became acquainted with Berkoff's work through successfull productions of the Exit Theatre, ''Decadence'' and ''East''. This performance, a co-production of the two playhouses: Gavella and Virovitica, calls for an extremely active involvement from the actors, luring them and the audience with its far-fetched situations and lines of potentially high expressivity. The story of the not so happy people and their not so happy lives is at the same time subversive and playful, bitter and sweet, cynical and tender, truthful and theatrical... ''Kvetch'' is a social comedy that puts us in a position, like in every good comedy, to laugh at ourselves.
