Wooden Staircase is a poetic drama of Time and Fate, a metaphor, leading to introspection. Two young people, connected through Time and Fate, are looking for consensus and comprehension between themselves. There is a mystic protagonist, Thomas. He embodies the famous writer Thomas Mann’s spirit, living beyond the time. Thomas lets the young protagonist, Vilius, go back to his past and compels him to face the results of his former mistakes. A rendezvous with the past has a large influence on Vilius present.
