  1. The main characters of the play are elderly people, whose life is already coming to its end. The inevitable endpoint is painted for everyone in his own special colours. The inhabitants of the boarding house spend their days according to the schedule, however, they are constantly falling into various comic and tragic situations. After all, old age is just a reason to think about the fragility of our life, where is always room for dreams and love.

Events of the performance could have happened anywhere and anytime. This is a universal story about the most important things told without many words. Or to be more accurate, completely without words...
