"I plan. God laughs."
During Martina's recent visit in New York City, she came in touch with "God", a comedy written by Woody Allen, an american screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, author, playwright and musician. She translated the play in Macedonian and began to actively work on its pre-production. Martina will produce this project as well as play one of the main characters.
"God is a reflection of bizarre human life. The scenes incorporated in God are in different periods and different locations." - Woody Allen. Whether you read "God", see it in the theatre and even become a part of it as an actor, the semi-ridiculous and semi-profound Allen theatre story is a laugh.
