Boris Fretlov struggles to set up shop in the western suburbs: his wife Ludmilla dreams of romantic fiction and lives an everyday nightmare. Sonya is a defiant teenager determined to enjoy her freedom in her new-found country, while 12 year old Svetlana escapes from the pressures of her family into an imaginative universe of stars and spaceships.
This play was commissioned in 1997 by Vitalstatistix.
