On the 160th anniversary of the birth of Ivan Franko
Lyric drama by Ivan Franko about love, in which love rises to the highest pedestal. A drama about a life that was wasted, about love lost due to selfishness, about unjustified hopes. After deep and painful experiences, forgiveness comes in the relationship of a couple in love.
The play depicts women's fate in the latest interpretation. The main character, Maria, made a mistake in her choice, and the choice leads her to deep moral and physical suffering. Therefore, she recalls her first love, grabs “at least in her letter, as a saving straw.” The hero personifies the struggle between an indifferent, detached “esthete” and a “living person” with feelings and emotions.
