And, of course, the most important moment of the festival will be performances based on the works of Dovlatov
The one-man show of Leonid Taranov is once again addressed to the witty, brilliant writer Sergei Dovlatov and practically, staged at the request of the audience. This time, the authors turned to such works as Compromise and Solo on Underwood. The play amazingly coexists with humor in satire, which, as you know, gives rise to a refreshing laugh. "There are no angels and no villains in this story ... there are no sinners and righteous people," but there are just people - known and unknown, their own and others, kind and evil, recruited and rebellious - whose life has been turned into an endless kaleidoscope of absurdity. Yes, we are talking about the past, but look - is it the past? Why is Dovlatov so surprisingly relevant today ?!
