Hide description

Young Lithuanian journalist - Deimantas, who was spending his vacation wandering around Europe and looking for inspiration to complete his first novel "Yesterday", gets robbed on a lonely Sicilian road. He ends up in Sortino, in the care of Maria Theresa (a wind generator administrator) and her brother Giuseppe, and spends his days waiting for a connection with the consulate of Lithuania, fighting with his childhood friend in Skype, but during the nights he receives visits from a strange phantom in the shape of a calf. Gradually the affection between Deimantas and Maria Therese grows, the scars - received during the robbing - heals, and even the Europe doesn't seem so hopelessly destined for destruction.. but it all gets disturbed by the arrival of Vigas - a friend from home and the eruption of a volcano.

The performance is a synthesis of the experience, fantasy and the phrasebook. In the summer of 2015, the writer experienced a mugging, a chase and an operation in a hospital, later recuperated in a hippie comune “Ciumara Ranni”, where he penned the play “Yesterday Forever”.
