The Poet is the main character of the play which also includes some autobiographical moments. In the beginning, while still young, he travels through time and similar situations, gradually maturing and trying to discover his purpose in life. He clearly comprehends the tragicomedy of his own existence but there is nothing much he can change – in this strange “road movie” that we call life he is just one of many characters. Grotesque, farce and auto-irony are his main companions. During his journey the Poet meets many people, from an old Beekeeper, who was once a famous poet, to an almost metaphysical Cleaner. Sometimes it is implied that the young Poet meets his older self, who in the later part of his life became a calm and wise beekeeper. The Poet is accompanied by a sort of antique choir, horrific beings that present each other differently every time. Maybe this is the journey of the dead, not the living, in the territory between life and death?
