A child is ridiculed and bullied at school. The management department of the school, however, claimed that it is all because of his backpack, a bright pink backpack full of little ponies from his favourite TV series. Despite his parents efforts to help him coping with the situation he is faced with, the bullying is merely growing more serious. A debate about “education” broke out between his parents, whose concepts on education diverge greatly from one another’s.

Both of them stick to their own opinions, accusing and attempting to persuade each other. Thier arguments are, in essence, a process in which two adults in a marriage try to “educate” each other. The child never really appears on the stage. And the conversation between the parents is rather “empty” because of the child’s absence.

 

Such a dispute which seems to be “for the sake of their children” turns into a war between the couple. The child is the weapon while words are the bombs dropped from behind the shields. Finally, the kid becomes more and more eccentric and autistic, and the distance between the husband and wife grows into an unbridgeable gap.

In seemingly casual conversations, the author intentionally added some unrealistic depiction of the space. As the communication between parents breaks down, the boundaries of the room also dissolves and expands. “The real world we face is a projection of our soul” – this line of a character in the play is a quote from a book. Similarly, the stage is a portrayal of the inner state of the characters.

The child, fading away in the play, tries to find his own way out alone.

Its a script based on real events that took place in North Carolina in the United States in 2014
