Summary/Abstract: In this paper“The autopsy of the policy-making among Albanians” will be reviewed Demon’s Diner– a political drama (written since 1993), focusing on the politico-ethical topic, the dramatic characters and the Albanian political theatre. The purpose of this drama is the examination / autopsies of policy-making among Albanians, through the portrayal of political figures/actors - presenting them as “mental products” of the old politics, wandering in “political thinking” vs. “acts in politics”. The other side of the analysis is, first and foremost, identify elements that are characteristic of this dramatic genre,we study the focusing peculiarities of the Demon’s Diner, such as:a faithful picture of the political situation/historical facts, consequences of politicians, major political problems in Kosovo, social solidarity, national aspirations, the international factor, political and territorial contraction. I will be interested to see how the author E. Kryeziu sets forth the mentality of the characters / politicians - they psychics, the discourse (declarative, and yowl), the use of antipode concepts and antonymic relations, and the force of dialogue, dramatic tension, and controversy.The burlesque of the title, as a show of political vulgarity (the dinner prepared by politicians/ demon diner), forms of this dinner (official dinner, rally, diplomatic emissary), time in drama/ the action in a play (diner - meals during which a meeting between the Albanian and the international representation, and dinner / reception as a dramatic tension), as well as the place (the venue is a restaurant/ a meeting place where “repressed” political machinations) are other issues which will be dealt with.
