THE ODESSA REVIEW NEW ISSUE
Anna Yablonska’s play “Family Scenes” is a story about Love and War. Love, which can unite and ruin fates. War, which can ruin human lives, but paradoxically, can sometimes help create understanding. The audience becomes not only viewers, but participants in the drama. The themes presented in the play are many: the pain of a soldier returning home from war, the collision of two generations, human values which transcend boundaries – and amid this, the story of a child. A child forgotten and abandoned by the adults in its life. A merciless analysis of the society in which we live, where war has become the norm and the alienation between people has reached its peak.
