House of the Mad, a black comedy


This weekend 15 students from Gjirokastra’s high schools put on stage at Zihni Sako Theater the black comedy „Shtëpia e të Marrëve“ (House of the Mad).  The black comedy  draws attention on the clash between generations when it comes to how to manage elements of cultural heritage, in this case the typical Gjirokastra home.

Its aim was to raise awareness in the community for Gjirokastra’s cultural heritage and involve the youth in protecting what is their home city’s identity. “Shtëpia e të Marrëve” is in harmony with the vision of CHwB Albania, that everyone has the right to enjoy, have access to, and participate in cultural heritage, and its mission, to promote cultural heritage as both a right in itself and a resource.
