Synopsis: 

In the play several women remember their younger days in St. Petersburg at the beginning of the 20th century. Communism's first years have gone by and the women talk of past events from their dead husbands' points of view. The bond between memory and forgetfulness develops into the main theme of the play, the manipulation of the past. The dialogue is compact, intellectually light, and ironically funny. The play's multiple tales begin again and again, always from a new viewpoint. (Tinfo/Sunklo)
