Inspired by Chekhov’s Swan Song the essay studies the topos of the nursing home in the context of literary gerontology. Tina Howe’s depiction of the institutional care in Chasing Manet reflects ambivalent sides of the stereotypical perception of the space: the one of the suffocating hopeless prison and unexpectedly another one of encouraging home. On the basis of works by S. de Beauvoir, M. Hepworth, J. King and U. Kriebernegg, the present study of nursing home in Chasing Manet identifies the fictional institution as the utopian model. The dramatic depiction of nursing home presupposes surreality. The archetypal literary criticism is used for interpretation of culmination and denouement of the comedy.
