Two actors explore the life-changing encounter between an overworked housewife and a mysterious bachelor against the backdrop of rising fascism. Allowing themselves only simple props and the power of imagination, they create a private human story that unfolds within a charged political landscape. This intimate play, in a new English-language version, celebrates the essence of theatre.
