'Stop the Tempo' in New York - Romania’s failure through an Irish lens

Stop the Tempo laments this fact and is set in the no-mans-land between the two nations. The play offers no solutions because, as Carbunariu points out, it’s already too late for them.

Things are as they are now. You make your peace with them or you’re fated to drift, haunting your own life, since you’re literally neither here nor there.
