The shiny past of educated daughters of an officer and the grey bleakness of the present connects the fates of Olga, Masha and Irina. Life in a small gubernatorial town is saturated with banality and the situation of these intelligent sisters gets more difficult every day. Their basic life feeling could be summarized in a single word - hope. The world of dreams and desires becomes an alternative form of being for them. Their inability to break the vicious circle of unfulfilled idealistic fantasies and the dismal reality is a source of bitter humour and grotesque compassion.

Premiere on 11 February 2017 at the Grand Theatre.
