A first act presenting a drinking session with three female students at a teachers' training college and three male engineering students, with the son of a sand-pit manager seeming to be the biggest catch, is contrasted with a second act set in twenty-first-century capitalist Russia in the luxurious flat of one of the boys who is now a successful middle-aged singer-songwriter married to a millionaire's daughter. When the students bring small cut logs in with them one might assume it is to fuel a stove but it seems it is indicate the lack of furniture, for they balance their bottoms on them, or even stand on them as part of some unnecessary circuiting of the stage. Perhaps the more eccentric moves are intended to emphasis an occasional surreal quality which echoes the oddity of the sentence structures. Or, since in the second act a tea-chest from the first is used as an occasional table, the logs are an effort to provide a contrast with the luxury for which the designers had too tight a budget.
