Summary : The events of the play encompass the time as far back as the period it took for the USSR to crumble and touch upon the present focusing the spotlight on a small funeral service, which grounds its success in some water-tight cooperation with the top echelons of power. Disturber of the operation’s peace Mister X’s expensive offer not to be refused is to neutralize its locomotive in the Government. The funereal business professionals are unfazed by the tricky situation and masquerading as innocent old-timers they manage to prevent an attack on their Minister as well as counteract to Mystery man who turns out to be an ambitious investigator with his eye on hitting a high-ranking post in the public sector. But there is still space for drama on the way to finale: the old couple are not without far-reaching plans themselves and, taking the lead from Mister X, they get rid of their man in Government to have a taste of governing themselves.
