THE LOTTERY TICKET
I. Characters

Ivan Dmitritch – a middle-class man.
Misha – the wife of Ivan Dmitritch, who purchased the ticket.

II. Setting

In the house of Ivan and Misha, the conversation starts at early in the morning.

III. Plot/Summary

Ivan Dmitritch earns 1200 per year and seems satisfied with his earning in the beginning and was happy to see series 9,499 of the Lottery ticket bought by his wife Misha in the newspaper, though he initially shows disinterest. But when Misha asks Ivan to check out the Number 26 he says, "later". It’s all about dream, which very rarely comes true. This, both Ivan Dmitritch and his wife Misha, knows.

Ivan starts imagining things that would never happen, his second marriage, relatives asking for money and getting jealous, his wife Misha putting the money in safe and locking it with keys, is his dream too. He thinks this way, because they have never kept their money in safe, as they earn less. But they are trying to be happy with this income and his wife buys tickets to fulfil their hidden wishes and, though Ivan doesn’t show his interest in ticket deep down, he too wants to win the prize money of 75,000. And it seems that they pray every day that some miracle will happen and bring smile in their life. But when in the end, the Lottery number is not 26, all their dream shatters. And so there is sudden change in his thinking, as he comes back to reality. And the truth reveals that he actually wants to die. And he was pretending to be happy.
