An original Czech play written for the Theatre X10 and its actors combines witty dialogues, poetic images, crazy songs, and dystopic visions. A young couple is running out of gas, so they stop at a gas station in the middle of the desert. Will the crazy locals kill them or will the couple manage to safe their own lives? And what is going to become their prison: a dark underground bunker or the claustrophobic darkness of their own relationship? When we listen to seashells, we can hear sounds that are only similar to the murmur of the ancient ocean but they are not real. In the same way, while living with someone, we are only exposed to a limited, incomplete part of his personality, to an imprint of the person. The reality never resembles our dreams and the apocalypse we expect is way different from the 90s catastrophic films.
The play was co-produced by the National Theatre Brno and created for the purpose of the Divadelní svět Brno festival.
