Abstracts
In dramas dealing with the topic of the Croatian War of Independence, written between 1991 and 2012, one third is comedies. But there is a great difference between those written during the war (from beginning till the end of the nineties) and those emerged in the post-war period. About twenty comedies written during the war are comedies in their distinct, basic form with all the comic subgenres: cabaret (Divorce Between Brothers Senker/Mujičić), political parody (Ivan Kušan Who is St. Stefan), social satire (Ivo Brešan Ghosts), situation comedy which depicts serious problems of the period (Eviction Miro Gavran) and various typical characters like war profiteers in I am in Hurry my Masseuse is Coming L. Scheuermann Hodak or false soldiers in Steak Tartar Z. Zoričić, etc.). In contrast to Anglo-American and even partisans comedies, Croatian war comedies do not advocate ideology (except clearly contrasting between aggressors and victims) because they are written from the perspective of the victims, using laughter to defy troubles or to provide relief through diminishing objects of fear (international observers, enemies, etc...). Showing possible positive solutions of serious problems, rewarding good characters (even after their death) and punishing evil ones, Croatian war comedies hold within themselves a sense of hope and meaning of life through affirmation of basic human values (love, friendship, patriotism…). Advocating such values, comedies helped surviving absurd life situation in which both dramatists and audience were caught in. After the war, comedies with war or post-war topics diverge in a completely opposite direction, despair and feebleness. These works are on the verge of the comedy genre mainly being dark comedies (and allegories) or grotesques, thematically spanning from guilt of kinship to society criticism. Use of laughter in them does not provide relief but affirms dark state of the world as eternal and permanent.
