If your grandson rings the bell at three in the morning, pushing a bicycle with a big backpack, saying that he just wanted to pop in, what does a good grandmother do? First, he puts a hearing aid in his ear, and then he sets about providing accommodation for the big traveler. This is how the comedy, which won great international critical and audience success, begins, in which two generations, two separate worlds, two ways of thinking and many unsaid words are mixed into a heart-warming and humorous cocktail.
As one critic wrote: “If you have a heavy heart or just want a little bit of warmth, see this play. If you are a member of the great generation and can’t understand your grandchild, or if you are of the Y-generation and your grandparents freak out, see this play. And if you just love theater, see this play.”
