1. One of the best plays of world drama.
2. At intermission, you really expect a glass of martini.
3. On stage - the unsurpassed Alice Guryeva.
The performance is a social provocation. Tragicomedy, the events of which unfold in an ordinary American family. Well, or almost ordinary ...
Tom Wingfield is the author and host of the play, whose memories come to life in front of the audience. The characters of the play are people living in a world of their own illusions, fears and unfulfilled desires. Amanda Wingfield is a small woman who frantically clings to another time and place. Laura is her adult daughter, whose isolation reaches a critical limit. Tom, Amanda’s son and Laura’s brother, justifies her own cruelty with a desire to break out of the “trap”.
There is another character in this strange family - a father who smiles all the time from a huge photograph. And a certain Jim - a guest in the Wingfield house, a man from the real world, will give hope for a real life ... And will he not destroy the fragile Wingfield world and their family happiness “behind the glass”?
Come! Martini is on the table!
The performance is in Ukrainian.
