“Where is the gun?” is a modern, satirical text with a strong existentialist background created in the seventies. In its essence the text deals with the man’s dual nature playing between the positions of oppressor and oppressed through the five protagonists of the play.
The world “gun” present in the title of the piece is just a mere theatrical sign, system of abstraction, system of power of violence that the characters use to terrorize the others. The play is set in an enclosed space where four characters sit while the fifth points a gun at them. Four people always try to exit the room, and one feels good inside. That one has the gun. The source of all problems is the gun. The gun can have a completely different purpose, but not in this case. Sadly, here it is impossible to live without a gun.
