"Original,  quirkily charming" Henry Hitching's" - The Evening Standard 

"Eloquent, heartfelt ..too many gorgeous performances to list" - Time Out 

Moscow, now. A small flat. One family, three generations, the same hangover. Life after communism is utterly different yet somehow eerily familiar. Petya's dodging  the draft, Sasha's jumping with every ring of the bell, Ivan's brought a mysterious stranger home, and now their guest Thomas is asking questions. 

Who do you trust? The state may not be spying on you, but can you say the same for your nearest and dearest?.
