Bezpridannitsa (Wizout a Dowry)

2017, Theatre "School of Dramatic Art"
To me, unsmiling lips bring terror, however scarlet; free from error of grammar, Russian language too."
A. S. Pushkin
based on N. Ostrovsky’s play, “Without a Dowry”
At the story's centre is a sort of 'Russian Carmen.' Except here, she is surrounded not by romantic toreadors and soldiers breaking rank, but with a strictly hierarchical and generally cruel band of "businessmen," with strange, invented names - for example, Mokiy Parmyonich and Kharita Ignatyevna. This allows us to see them as characters in a Russian commedia dell'arte, and to see Ostrovsky himself as the patriarch of a special genre in Russian drama. 
Dmitry Krymov
A co-production between the School of Dramatic Art and producer Leonid Roberman
