About event

Why is it worth going to the play "The ship collided with an iceberg"?

1. The play was created based on a play by Tennessee Williams, which for many years was banned for production in most countries of the world, including the United States.
2. The first and only production of this play in Kiev.
3. A rare genre for Kiev theaters is a psychological thriller.

The scandalous play “Suddenly Last Summer” by the famous American playwright Tennessee Williams, which was taboo for a long time, was finally staged on the Kiev stage by director Vitaly Kino called “The Ship Collided with an Iceberg”.

How cruel should people be to hide a terrible family secret? What thirst can possess us so much that we begin to morally eat each other?

The heroes of the play, who, for the sake of enrichment, who, in order to maintain their own reputation or the reputation of a member of their family, are capable of terrible acts that have no limit ... A highly qualified doctor by the name of Tsukrovich is called to the house of old Mrs. Winebl, who must make a lobotomy for her mentally ill niece. Tsukrovich needs money for his clinic, so there is no time to linger. But everything changes when a doctor gets acquainted with a supposedly sick girl. Despite the danger and the likelihood of losing his job, the doctor decides to get to the truth and understand what motives are hidden under the desire of relatives to destroy Katherine, and what happened last summer ...

Each life has its own truth, sometimes terrible, sometimes too complicated, but perhaps before you condemn each other, you need to at least try to understand ... Hear! This play is a psychological thriller, a bold psychoanalysis, an attempt to understand both the heroes who hide too much, and themselves. After all, each of us has our own terrible secret. Come if you are not afraid to be caught.
