The title is a quote from the first young malta festival in 2014.
It was written on the posters everybody's gotten to sign.
We are one. No matter where you come from, what skin color you have or what language you speak.
Why do people separate themselves from each other? Because of fear? From hate?
Many are still thinking that there are differences between black and white or German and Arabic! The word "race" is too often used to describe people who are actually just like us: human. We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.
In our play we'd like to face the truth about prejudice and reality.
What unites us? Do we have the same reactions or are some people "better" than other?
We want to remind everyone that only together we can live in this world and we have, as the new generation, the possibility to change the thinking.
The ruling thoughts anyway are, unfortunately, the thoughts of the ruling ones.
We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We share blood and we share the air that keeps us alive.
Scientist in England are testing four females on their reactions, coldly and unimpressed, in spite of their person-despising methods. Everyone of them has a different nationality. But does that affect the reactions?
"If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tic
kle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"
Are they equal or different? And in the end, does that matter?
