The bitter comedy of manners, in which the director cleverly confronts actors and spectators with the question – Are we or is the time "guilty" and invites everyone on a journey to their self, with the charm of the old Sofia Highlife, with a breath of love, with the truth that we all tend to tell others only what we cannot hide. "The Culprit" is a play in which the characters often repeat: "Such were the times”. It's meant as an explanation, justification, exoneration... This attempt to pass the responsibility for our own actions on the time, is in fact in unison with the comfort role that we play in front of ourselves. Only, no time is enough to render us completely innocent. Dimitar Dimov writes "The Gulprit" in an age ridden with guilt. To its many monstrous distortions, one that seemed to have forgotten all too easy: how hypocritical of us to deny or neglect the unpredictable power of feelings. The heroes of this story are confronted with fears, limitations, illusions and clichés from the late fifties. Strange, "The Culprit" is very lonely piece in the Bulgarian dramaturgy, notes Yuri Dachev. With the inexplainable attraction between the characters, the inevitable catastrophes, the unpronounced revelations. But the continuing misunderstanding about the division of guilt: our own and that of time, makes this text lively and contemporary.
