apartment Zoykina
May evening. Zoya Denisovna Pelts, a thirty-five-year-old widow, dressed in front of a mirror. To her on business comes the chairman of the house committee of Hallelujah. He warns Zoya that she was decided to tighten up – she has six rooms. After long conversations Zoya shows Allilue permission to open a sewing workshop and school. The additional area is sixteen fathoms. Zoya gives Alleluia a bribe, and he says that, perhaps, the rest of the room is separated, after which he leaves. Pavel Fedorovich Obolyaninov enters, Zoya’s lover. He feels bad, and Zoya sends the maid Maynushka for morphine to the Chinese, who often sells him to Obolyaninov. The Chinese Gasolin and his assistant Cherub are selling drugs. Manyushka tells Gazolina, a well-known crook, to go with her and, under Zoya, to dilute the morphine in the right proportion – he does it himself liquidly. Gasolin sends her his assistant, a Chinese-handsome cherub. Zoya makes Obolyaninov an injection, and he comes to life. The cherub declares the price greater than the price of Gazolin, but Paul gives him another and for tea and negotiates with the “honest” Chinese that he will bring morphine daily. Zoya, in turn, hires him to iron in the workshop. The delighted Cherub leaves. Zoya tells Pavel about his plans, Maniushka, already dedicated to all Zoya’s affairs, goes after a beer and forgets to close the door, which immediately penetrates the Amethysts, Cousin Zoe, the sharper and the rogue. He overhears the conversation between Zoe and Paul about the “workshop” that an administrator needs, and instantly guesses what’s wrong. Maniushka comes running, calling Zoya. She stuns at the sight of her cousin. Pavel leaves them alone, and Zoya is surprised that she herself read how he was shot in Baku, to which Ametistov assures her that this is a mistake. Zoya clearly does not want to receive him, but the cousin, who has nowhere to live, blackmails her with a heard conversation. Zoe, deciding that this is fate, gives him the place of administrator in his business, prescribes himself and introduces Paul. He immediately understands what an outstanding man is in front of him and how he will put the matter.

Alla agrees to start working in three days, as she needs money to leave for Paris – she has a fiance there. As a sign of friendship, Zoya gives her a Parisian dress, after which Alla leaves.
