BEING A NATIONALIST
Monologue of Memories for four Actors
(performed in Latvian)
Premiere April 13, 2017
12 EUR / 7 EUR students and seniors
In the world of a nationalist the interests of the state are more important than the interests of one’s own. Friends are the people who think in the same way, and are not being interested in the little everyday problems or worldly goods. Enemies are many, but they are well known. The true values are going to rise once again, despite the fact that in the materialistic world of today they have lost their value. The true patriots should not obey the government that surrenders to different international organisations. To live in this world that is full of challenges, one must firstly wake up him/her self to then wake the Latvian nation.
This is a story of how the play’s author Matīss Gricmanis went on to work as an assistant to a well-known nationalist depute in the Latvian parliament.
