RUSSIAN JAM

Ludmila Ulická

ARÉNA THEATRE

Ivan Rajmont

In this critcal lament over the situaton of contemporary Russia (and not only Russia) the author contnues in Chekhov's stylistc footsteps –indeed, the Lepekhins could be the descendants of Lopakhin from the Cherry Orchard. The presence of three sisters in the family is alsoa more than discreet allusion. The decay of traditonal values and the failure to fnd new ones is a leitmotf, with a wide range of fates andcharacters providing rewarding material for the actors of the theatre of the year in 2013.

Performance length: 165 min.
