Entering adulthood teenagers, "Games in the backyard" - in the first place for you! Wait for the premiere on the stage of the National Academic Theater of Russian Drama.
The play "Games in the backyard" by the popular Israeli writer Edna Masia in the production of Oded Kotler deeply shocking, shocking, evokes sympathy and even disgust. But you will not experience unambiguous feelings! It will be difficult for you to understand whom to pity and whom to blame.
Before the audience, the story of a court hearing about the brutal gang rape of a young girl will be played out. As in any investigation, there are defendants, there is a victim, face-to-face bets are assigned, testimonies are taken and interrogations are conducted.
