The play follows a group of people working in the Kamerny Theatre of Moscow in the fall of 1939, and explores how everyone, from the nameless make-up girl to the renowned actress Faina Ranevskaya, copes with the changing times. It is a kind of love-hate-letter to Russia, or an afternoon of leafing through a family album.
