You naive women, you geese: We, men, want many things, but more than anything else we want to be left alone.

A comedy about loneliness and unfulfilled love. Zneidookh wants an exciting bride, but prefers to sleep. Flotsika wants to go to the Rabbinical Authorities at 6am the following morning to beat the crowd. Khrabino wants Flotsika, Ostwind wants Bulba. Zneidookh both wants and renounces Flotsika and Bulba. Flotsika wants and renounces Zneidookh, and possibly Khrabino.
Great passions. Burning loves. Filth and intrigue. This play yields no weddings.
"What’s the dream and what’s reality? What’s serious, what’s nonsense?On one hand eh, and on the other hand meh, and in the middle – me."
