Presented aspart ofthe Finnish Theatre. First Time inRussianseries

Davide Giovanzana, Director:
The play portrays two parents, Moonika and Veini, who despite the domestic tranquillity inwhich they live, are somewhat clueless when itcomes tounderstand their children, Janita and Tarmo, orthe wider world that exists outside oftheir house depicted bythe Teacher and the Policeman. During the course ofthe play, this external world and the childrensreality slowly begin torevel themselves tothe parents. However Moonika and Veini are unable toreally grasp the true nature ofwhat they are seeing. Infact through out their marriage they have surrounded themselves with astrange and absurd wall ofhappiness with which toprotect themselves from any such revelations.

Behind the story filled with the uncanny Finnish humour, the play wonders whether itismore constructive toremain inthe warm and reassuring cocoon oflies that onestell tohimself orrather toface the disturbing and destructive truth.
