The play is set in a living room, partitioned by a wall that Rudi and Lidija, a married couple, erected a long time ago. When people come to visit them separately, they both tell their own story of dramatic and fateful events that occurred fourteen years ago and irrevocably changed their lives forever. It was fourteen years ago when the next door villa, inhabited by a bohemian painter and his family, sporting a rather unconventional idea of free love and open marriage, burnt down. 16 and 18 December at 19.30 and 31 December at 19.00.
