1. The legendary work of Bulgakov
2. Modern production, which from the first minutes involves the viewer in the world of the heroes of the play
3. Very topical issue and problems
Almost a hundred years have passed since the events described in the play Days of the Turbins, but every word of our glorious compatriot Mikhail Bulgakov is still relevant - no less relevant than at the beginning of the last century.
For several hours the audience will be able to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the old living room on the Andreevsky (Alekseevsky) descent, where they loved, dreamed, genuinely believed and hoped, no matter what.
"Days of Turbins" by Mikhail Bulgakov - a play about Kiev and the people of Kiev. In 1925, Bulgakov wrote a play based on his own novel "The White Guard" for the Moscow Art Theater. Because of problems with Soviet censorship, the author had to change the title to a more neutral one.
The play is basically autobiographical. Bulgakov by birth and education belonged to the environment that he portrayed in the novel and in the play, because he knew well what he was writing about. Bulgakov's characters are tolerant and decent people, ready to recognize the right to exist the position of another person, regardless of their own position. "Days of the Turbins" is a play about ... people, honest and noble, educated and thinking, who ended up in an extreme situation for themselves: when a friend with whom the whole of the First World War together yesterday took refuge in one greatcoat, tomorrow may prove to be an enemy the other side of the barricades. And it will have to shoot ... In general and in general, this play, like all other works of Bulgakov - about the problem of human choice.
In the process of staging the actors never ceased to be surprised that almost 100 years have passed since the events described by Bulgakov, but people have remained the same, and the events are repeated. We have not learned to draw conclusions from our own history ... Alas ... Perhaps the play "Days of Turbins" will make even some of us think about this, and then do something to change the situation for the better.
