On the stage, we see a picture that is not quite familiar — the scenography is solved in colors that a dog can distinguish. Animals speak the language of plastic theater, and the main character speaks in an accessible and modern way. This is the verbatim of Kashtanka herself. We look at the world through her eyes, we try to react like she does, and we hear all her thoughts , — the press service of the theater reported.
