In "About Russians" by Olena Hapieieva, created as a part of Theatre of Playwrights project "Why I Don't Want to Be Nice to Those Who Came to Kill Me", the narrator shares her tumultuous family history and strained relationship with her Russian father. Raised in Ukraine, she recounts her father's irresponsibility, alcoholism, and abusive behaviour towards her family. The narrator dreams of studying theatre directing in Moscow despite her grandmother's hatred for Russians. The text explores themes of identity, family dynamics, and the complex history between Ukraine and Russia.
The number of characters and the use of sound and visuals are to be considered by the performers/director.
