“Baskin ehk Nalja põhivormid“ is a study on humour. Authors want to know what is funny nowadays, here and now, today, when everything is allowed, no one is sent to jail for a joke, but working in an editorial board of humour magazine might be life threatening. They have experienced how easy it is to be serious and sapiential. They are aware, how convenient it is to be tragic and sad. They are aware, how ungrateful is to rejoice people and make them laugh. How complicated that is. But still. With their best intentions, vaudeville, french comedy, musical drama, soviet cinema, entertainment, open air comedy, anecdotes and legends are mixed, manufactured with artistic exaggerations and veiled with hazy hints. The result is the first comedy of Tartu Uus Teater.
