The play "Kaidasheva family" by the name of the same name classic of Ukrainian literature by Ivan Nechuy-Levytsky has for many years occupied a significant place in the repertoires of Ukrainian theaters as a true pearl of the Ukrainian dramatic heritage. At one time, Ivan Franko noted that the story "Kaidasheva family", due to the highly artistic depiction of peasant life, belongs to the finest decorations of Ukrainian writing.
For nineteen years now, on the stage of the Chernihiv Theater, this vibrant folk musical comedy is going on, whose theme has not lost its relevance to this day. At the heart of the story of the work lies the conflict between the elders and younger Kaidashami, their eternal and endless struggle for the division into "yours and mine," for the redistribution of property, and finally "for the pear".
Comic and dramatic situations in which the characters of the play fall from the very life. It is impossible not to laugh, observing the infinite quarrels of Kaidashov. But along with laughter there are clearly tragic accents, when small domestic disputes grow into a senseless war between the native people. In this play, saturated with vivid folk characters, vibrant dialogues, folk customs and rituals, laughter is heard through tears and vice versa.
You can, of course, consider the relationship of Kaidash as a life of an individual family, but you can look more broadly, and then we will have a bright picture of some moments of modern life. The main purpose of our performance is to remind our audience that lyrics, quarrels, and fights lead to spiritual impoverishment, disunity and destruction of man, family, whole country.
Each of us must think about whether a person is happier than having spoiled and made the unbearable life of his loved ones? The main thing for all of us - not to turn into Kaidashov, but to be human sensitive, loving, patient, capable of forgiveness and depth of feelings.
The dynamic stage action, full of colorful sketches of folk life, songs and dances performed by a talented ensemble of artists, the ballet of the Chernihiv theater, attracts spectators and a desire to meet her favorite characters again with this impressive comedy performance.
