ABOUT THE PLAY
Time. What is time if not a substance invisible to the eye, but that can be heard in a heartbeat, seen behind the eyelids, and felt deep inside in every pore of human skin. It’s both nowhere and everywhere. But who listens to the heart beating nowadays, or who dares to take a peek behind the eyelids and who comes to think of skin pores at all?
The “Fairy Tale of Lost Time” is a story that essentially talks about the transience of time and preciousness of human life. It is an interesting, witty and above all poetic play about a boy called Petja Mihajlovič Zubov who was turned into an old man because of his distinctiveness, shyness and the ability to feel the world and the existence of time. The unfortunate event that happens only once in a trillion years turned Petja into an old man, as well as Stasja, a girl whom he liked and who enjoyed reading books and listening to Petja talking with time, i.e. to himself. In order to find her among a crowd of old ladies and bring back his youthful age, Petja set on a journey of getting to know himself through accepting his feelings.
This somewhat fantastic and enigmatic play was inspired by the eponymous fairy tale written by the Russian writer, Eugene Schwartz (Eugene Schwartz). Today, the story serves to remind us of the mortality of every individual, and of a very short amount of time we have on disposal to live in a way our heart craves or in a way the substance of which we are woven tells us.
