Mkhat, "The Lower Depth"
"The Lower Depth", directed by the People's artist of Russia V. Belyakovich. Moscow, Moscow Art Theatre (Mkhat), June 12, 19:00.
The brilliant play by Maxim Gorky, along with the unique plays by world-famous Anton Chekhov have made the Moscow Art Theatre world-famous. A resounding success of the play "The Lower Depths" had no parallel in the history of the national theater.
A man in search of meaning of life. Looking for it while living in a filthy rooming house, in poverty, in hunger seems strange. And does the happiness even exist? It does, but one has to believe in it... It does exist and the man himself is the creator of his own happiness, say Gorky's heroes. But where can it be found? The play makes one think.
The bright contemporary staging was created by the talented director Valery Belyakovich. Iron plank bed, the white robes of characters against the background of huge black stage against the, a strong music - all this adds to the unique images, played by the best actors of the theater with all the dedication and love for people and for the great Maxim Gorky.
