The production maps and sorts out the material that was collected throughout two-month interviews and a rehearsal process with the actors and actresses of the Theater Divadlo z Pasáže. It is a reflection, so, at some moments, one thought jumps with an association leap to another. Please forgive us.
It’s from the life beyond the norm, so it may be sadder at some point than you’d expect. It is played by actors with their own nature, so it may be more humorous at times than you’d expect. It‘s about the boxes the others have put us in, so it may be more painful at some point than you’d expect.
It’s about the boxes in which we pack our own mess ourselves and hide it from view somewhere in the attic, so it may be more personal at some moments than you’d expect. The words of director Monika Kováčová, censored
