I grew up listening to their stories, lustfully looking through their travel photographs, even reenacting their memoirs in front of the living room mirror. Yet, it was only when I started traveling solo myself that I discovered all their adventures have been made through a veil of Tatar upbringing, which, in many ways installs rather conservative viewpoints.
So, when the characters of the play leave their home, they discover a whole different way of living, behaving and interacting with the world. But what happens when they go back? How does one preserve their “freedom” while “respecting” their culture? What has changed and what has remained the same when a woman from a traditional family embarks on a solo-travel journey?
