"Parents’ School Meeting" is the second in line production of Open Space and tries to engage the audience in the self-analysis through its exposition to the artists’ life experiences.

The play examines the manifold implications of parenting roles, of how seemingly unimportant details affect our life, of demands and restrictions imposed by gender-stereotyping, of male roles in gender equality. It looks at the oppressive nature of patriarchal society, how it affects both men and women and what is victimised in the world of conventions.

The play draws on personal life experiences of the cast, interviews with citizens and a short story by a Georgian classical writer Niko Lortkipanidze "Tragedy without a Hero".
