Why should you go to play number 13. Crazy night, or the marriage of Pigden?

1. Viewers around the world agree that this piece is very, very funny.
2. Many unexpected situations and ironic moments
3. Two hours of adventure with the best actors of the theater.

The play “No. 13 (Crazy Night, or Pigden's Marriage)” has already been named the most international ridiculous play. Although the play's authorship belongs to the resident of strict England - Ray Cooney - the comedy is very warm, funny and full of skills to laugh at himself.

Undoubtedly, the performance is supported by the fact that “No. 13” was recognized as the best English comedy of 1991, won the L. Olivier Prize, and since those times has not left the stage in the whole world.

Small and seemingly innocent at first glance, the intrigue of the assistant prime minister with the secretary of the chief should not cause any inconvenience to anyone. But it was not there! A grandiose scandal is coming, as a result of which not only “heads will fly,” but perhaps a real murder. Who will have to unravel this tangle of passions?

Suddenly, this role is being imposed on George Pigden, the modest and inconspicuous secretary of the failed Romeo, who in his life did not take part in such intrigues. The upcoming long night was for him (and of course, for the audience!) At night of the most unusual adventures. First, he seduces the old maid, then becomes the husband of someone else's wife, escapes from the enraged cuckold husband, hides the corpse of the detective loser and ... But let's not get ahead, you will certainly be more interesting to see everything yourself!

In the performance “No. 13”, staged by the director Irina Barkovskaya, the best actors of the theater will play: O. Zamyatin, K. Kashlikov, O. Kogut, N. Kudrya, I. Novak, L. Tishchenko, U. Dyak, S. Muskvin, V. .Rashchuk, N.Shevchenko, A.Valyuk, A.Ponomarenko and others.

The duration of the play "№ 13 (Crazy Night, or The Marriage of Pigden)" - 2 hours and 30 minutes. Comedy in two acts.
