About the play 

A Family in the middle of dystopia…

Maybe they are ecstatic, they are not themselves, or maybe the reality they have been in for a long time has turned them into this state... Are they alive? What is life? How do we know that we are alive? Is living a struggle? Both yes and no.

In the midst of dystopia, would you fight or wait? Would you run away? Time? Why do we always think, "I wish we had spent more time with them" when we lose a loved one? Is it possible to ignore the truth and erase its existence over the years? From where?
