The play Sorry Mom, by the fairy tale of Russian writer and playwright Sofya Prokofyeva, tells how difficult it is sometimes to deal with yourself and say sorry. It is a modern fairy tale about the insult, disappointment and need of every child and every person for sincere love, about how the imagination and emotional excitement of one child seamlessly blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy.

At first glance, everything looks simple and ordinary. A boy named Vasya is rude to his mother because she doesn’t have enough money to buy him a wooden horse. Despite everything, Vasya does not want to apologize for his inappropriate behavior. He is so angry that he decides to leave home and find herself another mother, better than his own. The play Sorry Mom is a touching truth about how each of us in this world has an irreplaceable mother and that only she, in her specialty, is the best for us.
