Carlson, who lives ...

In the story of Astrid Lindgren to the seven-year-old Kid, a man with a propeller appeared and taught him to fly, travel on roofs ... and question all existing rules.
And what friend would a seventeen-year-old Kid meet? Who could influence the consciousness and the whole subsequent life of an almost adult? What would a modern Toddler be like meeting with Carlson today?
The play of Irina Ioannesyan is a paradoxical, witty and sometimes even bitter answer to this question. A philosophical tale for adults, a play-equation that can be solved in many ways, but the solution itself will make you peer into your relationship with the world.
In the Swedish city of Stockholm, the most ordinary Swedish family lives - mom, dad, three children, all very well, an unusually powerful grandmother - almost a perfect picture ... Until a strange person appears on the steps of the house, and the gingerbread house begins to break up ...
Director Katerina Stepankova tells a tale about heroes we've known since childhood, placed in modern realities, where they live among the rules and regulations, need love and understanding, seek to find someone with whom they can share their loneliness and defend themselves from vulnerability, and make ambiguous actions ...
