Moscow, 2005. Lillian, an American college student, falls ill with a mysterious disease. At the private “American” clinic, her first doctor is Spanish and the second is Russian, and soon her British ex-boyfriend has arrived through the window. As accents and cultures collide almost farcically, and time slips forwards and backwards in loops, Lillian’s disease begins to mutate, causing new and different symptoms in each person it infects, turning the world topsy-turvy in its wake.

“Liliya uses language in many evocative ways. Everyone seems to be a foreigner bemusedly observing their surroundings. …. Characters speaking in accents and dialects achieve a hard-won honesty…” – Theatre Is Easy
