Sorry, We wish we had something sensible to say. But a war is too big a thing even for us. We are just here to make a show.

Something about a balloon slowly de ating, a nose bleeding, little helicopters falling down from a tree, a shower crying, audience members shooting, and three soldiers roller-skating and talking backwards.

Huh? Come and see for yourself.

War is a subject that we are all concerned about. Our children have their own ideas about it, but, try as we might, we never have any real answers for them. The show is a powerful comedy. Play-acting, children’s games and current events all blend into each other, jumbled together in what appears to be complete chaos, bordering on slapstick.

Skużawna. Xtaqna kellna xi ħaġa bis-sens x’ngħidulkom, imma l-gwerra hija xi ħaġa kbira wisq, anki għalina. Aħna qegħdin hawn biss biex nagħtu wirja.

Xi ħaġa dwar bużżieqa li bil-mod il-mod qed titlef l-arja, imnieħer li nfaġar, ħelikopters żgħar li qed jaqgħu minn siġra, shower li qed tibki, membri tal-udjenza li qed jisparaw, u tliet suldati li qed jagħmlu roller-skating u jitlkellmu bil-maqlub.

E? Ejja u ara b’għajnejk inti stess.

Aħna lkoll ninkwetaw dwar il-gwerra. Uliedna għandhom l-ideat tagħhom dwarha, imma, nippruvaw kemm nippruvaw, qatt ma jirnexxilna nsibu tweġibiet tajbin x’nagħtuhom. Din il-wirja hija kummiedja qawwija. Ir-reċtar, il-logħob tat-tfal u l-ġrajjiet kurrenti jidħlu f’xulxin, jitħalltu bejniethom u joħolqu dak li jidher li hu kaos, kważi buffunata.
