The play staged by Özer Tunca, among the Ankara State Theater directors, will be meeting with audiences in the Ankara Büyük Tiyatro (Grand Theather of Ankara) during January. The play, which is performed to a full house, is written by the great author Necip Fazıl. The soul-searching of a high criminal court judge, who is extremely committed to the law, never compromising and stonyhearted, is told in the play, where the young convict yells at the judge: Your Honor! This world is not four cornered. I wish someday you open your sealed heart! You will hang me! But, my soul will follow you step by step both in this world and beyond!
