This sto­ry abo­ut an or­di­nary 28-year-old Mus­co­vite Zo­ya be­gins on the day when her li­fe part­ner Ser­gey ste­als pen­gu­ins from the zoo: “In the zoo, it was aw­ful. Rot­ten wa­ter, conc­re­te, cap­ti­vity. I sa­ved them.“ Ena­mo­ured Zo­ya has no cho­ice but to le­ave her job as a chef and app­ly for a new po­siti­on, clo­ser to ho­me, as icy wa­ter for pen­gu­ins sho­uld be chan­ged eve­ry fo­ur ho­urs. This pla­ce is a scho­ol whe­re the he­ad­mist­ress, fas­ci­nated by Zo­ya’s know­ledge of works of John Max­well Ta­ylor, of­fers the girl a scho­ol psy­cholo­gist po­siti­on. Psy­cholo­gical help is re­qu­ired not on­ly by tro­ub­led te­ena­gers, one of tho­se Shu­rik Bols­ha­kov risks his li­fe eve­ry night jum­ping on­to the mo­ving tra­ins ro­ofs. Eve­ry­one aro­und Zo­ya has so­met­hing odd abo­ut them. And it is me­di­oc­re Zoe who is des­ti­ned to help them – thanks to unex­pected­ly dis­co­vered pa­ranor­mal abi­liti­es...

This play, writ­ten by a young pla­yw­right Eka­teri­na Mav­ro­matis, was first pre­sen­ted at the fes­ti­val "Ly­ubi­mov­ka-2016", and it will be sta­ged by De­nis Aza­rov who pre­vi­ous­ly had sta­ged “Ho­liday at Iva­novs” at the Go­gol cen­ter. He is a di­rec­tor with tas­te and in­te­rest in the po­etics of ab­surd which he finds both in re­al li­fe and mo­dern dra­matur­gy. The per­forman­ce, ba­sed on a cun­ning, sen­ti­men­tal and ve­ry fun­ny text abo­ut rest­less pe­op­le, suf­fe­ring from lack of warmth, might ma­ke a dif­fe­ren­ce in the world. It wo­uld be do­ne Zo­ya’s way – thro­ugh lo­ve and un­ders­tan­ding. The pre­mi­ere oc­curred on Ap­ril 13, 2017.
