Present Perfect
Marek Bogacki "Not knowing, that bothers me. It's like the ghosts never leave", admits one of the characters in "Present Perfect". Indeed, this is a common thread to both dramatic works. In none too remarkable a way, extending over our everyday is the presence of the past, where time stands still, where we are free to re-live our histories and to make our present perfect.
