Therefore a stage design idea emerges before the text. A loft flat where live a couple, an ordinary and getting spoiled by life. They attempt a suicide by get fire themselves. Being helpless against market society. On the play we watch the reasons of this irreversible act.

In this play three different eras of a man staged with a different perspective and and text is not linear. The writer mentions that “This play, is a meta modernist experiment. Meta modernism comes from postmodernism, conception in viewpoints of aesthetics after 2000s culture and art life. It is not a concrete art movement, but shortly; it examines oscillation in the edges of nature, quaintness, searching the origins, re-narration, new sincerity conceptions. And of course magical realism or speculative realism (which i also use). For understanding this genre examples are; Wes Anderson, Miranda July in theatre pioneers of Brussels theatre movement.
