In this play, DAH Theater deals with the famous Nastasijević family and explores the spiritual heritage that this family has left to our culture. The artistic and political context between the two world wars is the background of the events in this play, which combines several forms of stage expression. The audience passes, on the one hand, through a world that is partly factual, based on biographical data from the life of this interesting family, and on the other hand, it is intertwined with motifs and fiction from the literary and dramatic work of Momčilo Nastasijević. [2010]

The audience follows the collision of worlds, real and fictional, through the characters of Momcilo Nastasijević’s stories as they meet their creator, listen to and perform the music of his brother Svetomir, a composer, while the Nastasijević sisters reveal their secrets and in their own way participate in creating an imaginary-real world surrounding them, in the form of a traditional “evening” or soirée. The play illuminates the artistic and cultural milieu of interwar bourgeois Serbia, while projecting a strong artistic vision. The birth, development and “hibernation” of our bourgeois class- the consequences of this history and its influence on the further development of the bourgeois class and bourgeois thought are some of the issues that this play raises.
