Three male and one female students open up to their teacher Yelena Sergeyevna to wish her a happy birthday. They even got a present for it. Surprised and touched, the teacher invites her protégés into her house. But the coffee break soon becomes uncomfortable, because behind the apparently nice gesture of the students there is a perfidious plan: In order to exchange their math work and thus ensure a good final grade, the young people want to extort the key to the safe from their teacher. What at first seems like a bad schoolboy prank soon develops into an oppressive situation. Elena Sergeyevna has to put up a lot of resistance to defend her ideals. Premiered in 1981, the play “Love Yelena Sergeyevna” by the Latvian author Lyudmila Razumovskaya paints a picture of an aggressive generation that seems to have lost all values and respect. However, the suspenseful piece also poses the question to what extent the general social pressure to succeed shaped these people.
