This article analyses the unfinished tragedy “Dissidents, or Fanny Kaplan” by postmodernist writer Venedikt Erofeev. The drama manifests a special hierarchy of values being destroyed by reality. The relevance of the work lies in the fact that the text of the play has not yet been considered in the mode of the level layout in actual connection with the conceived V. Erofeev triptych. The format of the triptych allows the author to overcome the boundaries of the semantic range and connotative substitution. The writer moves from the integrity of the reflection of life to the variative self-destruction, to the loss of the most important ontological components of life, i.e. the category of faith. The conclusions indicate the rhizome character of the meaning which ontologically cannot be completed. The reception of the play “Dissidents, or Fanny Kaplan” verifies the objective idea of V. Erofeev's creative landmarks.
