After nine years, Tallinn City Theatre was again happy to collaborate with the director Adolf Shapiro from Moscow, who will put on Madis Kõiv’s “Return to Father” at the Heaven Theatre. Even though Adolf Shapiro has a long and deep connection with Estonia, this is the first time for him to stage an Estonian play.

In “Return to Father” Madis Kõiv uses his unique poetic style to weave together pieces from different times, mainly focusing on the 60-year-old Homecomer’s memories about his family and home in the small town of Valga of 1930ies and 1940ies. It is one of the best known plays by Madis Kõiv, who has already become a classic among Estonian playwrights.
