Dear friend!
Join us as we celebrate my 65th year of life. Years come and go, and with them worries and joys. Together we´ve gone through mill, we´ve laughed, we´ve cried. Now it´s time to reminisce over it all.

Yours truly
Aunt Õie

"Aunt Õie's 65th Birthday" is an existential-utopian comedy in one act. It takes place in an installational, two-floor living space. The audience arrives at the party, Õie's apartment is cramped, but the more the merrier. Let's celebrate the years we lived together, let's look at the pains of the past and the being of the present. As the quote goes: youth is a beautiful time, youth never comes back!
