A city hospital is a place where the performance is running. The heroes of the performance are young couples expecting their baby birth. The play’s author and director Ilgiz Zayniev is speaking: “The plot of the play came when we were waiting for the daughter. I witnessed and experienced all the process from the beginning to the birth. The problem of pregnancy maintenance has stirred my pulses at that time. I listened to the stories of my wife, our friends, I read blogs of mothers-to-be, I collected ideas for the “In waiting” play (and for the performance). Almost all the stories that you will see in the performance, they are absolutely true stories of real people. I add something, dramatized and overcoloured, but the rest is true”. The “Expecting you” play is dedicated to bright memory of Tufan Minnullin, who contributed greatly to preservation and development of tatar repertory theatre.
