Our Omelka has a small family: only he and she, old and old, and two guys whiskered, and two crested guys, and two dolls in the cradle, and two Christ's in the necklace. ”Almost every Ukrainian has known this since childhood.
And our Omelka has the Kaidashev family. And everything in this family is enough: happiness, tears, quarrels and disputes, despair, joy, hope and faith. Belief that peace and harmony will finally come in the family and in the soul of each of its members. You can only say one thing that just does not happen in the family. This performance is a mirror for every family.
It does not happen to you that the native person in the world becomes hated and unbearable for you. And the biggest mistake at this moment to agree with this feeling. It is hard to stop right now, stop yourself and come to your senses, to prevent this unbridled force of destruction that is coming towards you and your family. Destroy quickly. Stop wisely. Rescue is easy if timely.
For the director of the play Igor Fedirko this work is alive. He breathes it for more than one year. This is not just another trivial performance based on the social and everyday story of the outstanding Ukrainian writer Ivan Nechui-Levitsky with its standard naturalistic design. This is a living story, complete and unstoppable. The protagonist of this story is the family.
The family is not born here on earth, not even in the church, it was born and blessed by God. An even greater blessing is the birth of a child. Then this is a full-fledged FAMILY. The theme of the family sooner or later becomes important for everyone. It is not important only for the family Kaydashi, but it is only for now.
