The new play of Elena Pegka, presented for the first time in Greece by the National Theatre of Northern Greece deals with a boy from Skopje, Ogki, a child exiled to Vienna, searching out for adventure in an attempt to escape. Ogki begins his trip in an imaginary place and time, as Alice in Wonderland. There he meets Biki and together they wander in the destroyed Balkan landscape and come across people drawn out of the absurdity of war: Mrs Sarajevo 1993, an English reporter, a shooter with calaznikof, the General Secretary of NATO, the director of Belgrade Zoo, a lonely girl needing their help.
