Teenager Elizabeth Bam is the main character of the play. Her short name sounds like a hit on a drum and stands for a morbid fight with fate. The girl is persecuted by two shadowy personalities from the beginning to the end of the play. They are both blaming Bam with a homicide, which she has not committed. Bad dream! The girl is trying to recollect herself, to escape, to talk her way out and to divert the persecutors. Sometimes she is successful. And at these times the tension of waiting for something terrible to happen is relieved by a clown gag. Persecutors accept Elizabeth’s invitation to play. The accused victim and the accusers readily immerse themselves in mock games: “broken telephone” and “cats and mice”. But amusement apart, persecutors stay focused on their aim. In the end of the play, they take Bam away.

Two powerful forces act in the play: one is telling a storyline, while the other attempts to break the storyline of the play and turn the play into a mix of circus, buffoonery, frivolities, and independent episodes. The first is playing on the theme of anxiety, the second is a celebration and an explosion. The two forces are in a battle. In the end, regardless of the gloomy beginning and the end, our memory fixes on the eccentric game. Elizabeth Bam is a sincere, anxious, charming and sensitive character, occupying the central place in the performance.

Daniil Kharms (real name Daniil Yuvachev, 1905-1942) is considered a classic of the Russian absurd literature. His work stems from the literary tradition of the 1930s and the artistic collective OBERIU that he had started together with like-minded artists („Obyedineniye realnogo iskusstva“, the Union of Real Art, the members of which were called Oberiuty in Russian).

The world had hardly heard anything about Kharms and his works before 1970s. In 1962, a collection of his poems for children “Games” was published in Russia. For 20 years afterwards he was being labelled as a happy crazy uncle-figure who comes to a kindergarten occasionally to amuse children. The “adult” Kharms was known only to a handful of underground youngsters who read Kharms’ “Incidences” and “Elizabeth Bam” published in samizdat. In 1978, a small German publishing house published the first collection of prose by Kharms for “adults”. And the real breakthrough took place in the years of “Perestroyka”, when his works started appearing in humour magazines. They created the image of a anecdote-man. Only in the middle of the XXth century Kharms was first called the “genius of absurd literature” and a “founder of European absurd literature”; his works emerged and were compared to authors such as Beckett and Ionesco. The down-fall of the world, dissonance, destruction of the conventional order and deteriorating human relations were the issues oberiuty had deep concerns about and foresaw the results of. Thus life nightmares and nonsense became a background for absurd action as well as its cause in some sense. The works of Kharms have been significantly influenced by Gogol (noted personaly by Kharms) and Dostoyevski.
