Distinctive feature of the characters in “Rūstytė” is that all of them are spiritually poisoned, their personalities are more or less disintegrated, affected by toxic forces from outside. In “Rūstytė” there is no main theme, it is a huge pile of many themes. The main character is based on a person who the author had been following on Facebook for a year before writing the play. That person’s social mask of typical middle aged woman, going through a divorce and sharing on social media details of her fight for custody of her children and projecting herself as a activist in fight for animal rights and welfare. Author’s relationship with the person she is following is shining with empathy, rejection and even denial.
