In his bitter-sweet small-scale drama Illusions, Ivan Vyrypayev explores the mystery of the intimate universe of married couples. In their late day they reflect, comment, confess to each other. A few surprises surface … A question arises whether love only makes sense when reciprocated. What is the opposite to illusion – a lie or truth? What is the essence of our lives and relationships? Is that that which we lived through, desired, sacrificed; or that which is hidden deep within as a secret of wisdom and opportunities missed? Do we need an anchor in the turmoil of instability and uncertain values? Irony intervenes with dramatic statements, dynamic sequences of focused monologues shed light on matter-of-fact narrative.

Running time: 1 hr 30 mins with no interval

Due to the ongoing pandemic situation and for disease prevention, we have to block (reserve) a large number of seats in the auditorium. Every Friday we release for sale all tickets that the COVID traffic light allows for the following week. We therefore recommend that you visit our website on the Friday of the week before the performance of your choice to purchase tickets released for sale for the coming week. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to your visit!
