The story is profound, whimsical, yet at the very same time plays with reality and fantasy. This performance explores these themes in the intertwined stories of 5 couples desperate to ease their feelings of isolation, boredom and loneliness. Situations happen in different time and space: a lonely soldier who refuses to forget his first sexual experience and keeps reliving it in his mistress’s arm, two strangers who find mutual connection and release their fantasies and desire for each other in the underground train, a couple who turn to violence against each other in order to find their buried lust, a wife and a husband who take their sexual fantasies to another level hoping to reconnect again, and a widower who comes to visit his wife when it is too late.

“There is the loneliness of being alone, left or abandoned. Then there is the more poignant kind – when we are alone inside a relationship. Loneliness creates its own set of sub-rules in relationships. It creates its own demands on the soul. Sometimes this loneliness creates a space for creative solutions.If partners are unhappy, they can buy company, disappear into memories or take extreme chances”, – says director of the play. She also throws us back the question: “How do we understand closeness today? Why are people afraid of each other’s presence? Why does the relationship turn into a rough, searching for adrenaline pulse, primeval passions? Where is the place for love? We do not say we succeed in finding answers, but it is worth to listen to S. Parulskis and his characters. Who will deny their or our dark side?”
