What I saw at the show surprised me and shocked me in an amicable way. The text of the play is “monologue,” that is, as it were, my internal dialogue with myself. And today I saw how this story unfolds on a different scale - new colors were added, unexpected episodes, a connection with Brecht and Chekhov appeared. And for myself, it suddenly became something more than what I wrote. This is a complex text, because it is monotonous in some places, but the actors managed to make it very bright. And for me it is very valuable that for two hours the action kept me in spectator tension, I was immersed in it completely. Thanks to the actors, directors, choreographer. Thank you all!
