synopsis A cycle of four interrelated plays portraying the ordinary routine of life in the Witkiewicz household with the young playwright, Stas, as the hero. The characteristic activities are getting up, dressing, having breakfast, paying and receiving visits, studying, playing, and most of all listening to adults. These brief vignettes of domestic life show the realistic side of Stas\'s  ability to capture the way people talk in everyday life and reveal the comic and ironic aspects of daily existence.
