This, That and the Other are three best friends who love writing songs together. One day they decide to take part in the Best Song of the Year Contest. A burning desire to win the contest and acclaim, a thirst for fame break the three friends apart. Even though each of them is confident in his song and seeks victory, they have to face unexpected pressures and challenges. How to stop thinking only about yourself? How not to sit locked up in your room and how to learn to preserve true friendship? These are some of the questions bothering every young person who is not only keen to write and play his or her own songs but also take their first steps in life on their own.

This semi-staged concert, directed by Evelina Šimelionė, features songs performed by the actors-songwriters Donatas Želvys, Kristupas Biržietis and Gytis Šimelionis set to the poems by Lithuanian poets Juozas Erlickas, Justinas Marcinkevičius, Teofilis Tilvytis, Violeta Palčinskaitė, and others. Actors, addressing their audience in the language that is contemporary, dauntless and accessible, aim to reach out younger audiences, encourage their creativity and free expression of thoughts and views on the topics that they consider important. The Klaipėda Brass Quintet, under the artistic leadership of Sigitas Petrulis, will accompany them on stage.
