In a beautiful world, where everything is perfectly organized, Avi and Iva are solely responsible for making sure that everything stays just the same as it was yesterday: Lovely and clean, satisfying and comforting. Then one day, their cozy life is suddenly destroyed. Plug is alone and terribly hungry, and has even lost all her marbles.
This new production from AGORA Theater deals with the theme of responsibility in human relationships and conceives a utopia in which the difference of others can be acknowledged without losing one’s self.
Iva, Avi and Plug welcome the audience into a cozy inner stage space in the form of a living room entirely surrounded in flowers. With few words, joyfully playful actions, touching songs and dance-like movements of daily life, they magically tell and act »the story of a long day«.

AGORA Theater was founded in 1980 in close association with student theater. For 30 years, Marcel Cremer served as artistic director, playwright and director of AGORA Theater and shaped it into a professional and renowned ensemble in the independent theater scene. The autobiographical theater method is a key component of his work. Today, artistic direction is in the hands of Kurt Pothen. Autobiographical theater methods remain an ongoing element within the works, and develop constantly further along with the ensemble. Collaboration with guest directors, playwrights and dramaturgs is actively sought and emphasized, as well as exchanges with artistically related ensembles.
