Moskow. Praying for a Cup

 

 

“In front of us are three hours of another life – conversations about children, friends, love... At first glance this life does not look different from others. Only through the window, day and night, there is a KGB car on patrol. The performance in three acts shows an afternoon, a night and a morning of a wife and a husband, with their doubts, fears, happiness and dreams… Following Chekov’s tradition the author called his play a comedy.”
