Everyone tries to delay it, avoid it, or outrun it. Some people ignore it, while others try to overcome it with the latest scientific innovations, and still, others mock it. No one eagerly awaits it, but it inexorably arrives. It often catches us unprepared because, throughout our lives, we assume it is distant, that it belongs to others, and that it will somehow miraculously bypass us. Yet, it comes and lingers, transforming us into individuals who find themselves undeservedly on the fringes of society. It is the merciless old age.

Premiering at the National Kaunas Drama Theatre and directed by Aleksandras Špilevojus, this story centres around the often forgotten, undervalued, mocked and discriminated against group of elderly people. It delves into the lives of those whose experiences are priceless treasures, individuals who carry more memories than future plans. This narrative prompts reflection on our present and our elderly future. As the French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir once said, “If we do not know who we will become, we cannot know who we are now.” To prevent old age from becoming a frightening and shameful taboo, it is essential that we engage in open conversations about it.

A colourful group of seniors gathers for the funeral of their old friend. They have much to catch up on, much to discuss, yet very little time. This comedic performance brims with humour, memories of youth and talented actors from the older generation.
