Grupa aktorów w różnych kostiumach trzymająca czerwone wachlarze.

A musical show based on the lyrics of the internet's most mysterious author, Malcolm XD. His short, absurd, ironic stories have won the hearts of millenials and have recently received film adaptations by Netflix and Canal+.

In a mouldy basement in a block of flats, a housing community meets. A meeting about revitalising the lift unexpectedly turns into a brawl, the course of which looks suspiciously familiar. Will we ever be able to break free from the vicious circle of disputes and settlements?

„The mundanity of the subject matter mixed with a camp, baroque and operatic form produces surprising results and entertains in a bittersweet way (...) A microcosm of the absurd”.
Małgorzata Klimczak, Dziennik Teatralny 

„It is an uncompromising satire on modernity and contemporaries - unabashedly true, juicily honest, and brilliantly absurd at the same time”.
Daniel Źródlewski, Teksty Źródłowe
