The world masterpiece of the great Serbian playwright is the "eternal" story: as a desire for power and an ambitious desire at all costs to possess it, they spoil the human soul beyond recognition, distort normal human feelings and relationships between people, both close and simply familiar.
A comedy about the sudden acquisition of power by an ordinary man and the sudden loss of this power. About his wife, "lady minister", a simple woman who imagines herself a "socialite" and eager to change everything - from furniture to her son-in-law.
About their relatives, seeking to extract from their new position of relatives their mercantile benefits, and about their entire "environment", servile and intriguing. Time passes, fashion changes, technology improves.
And people, with their ambitions, passions and an indispensable desire to "become famous" in the ministerial chair are the same as a century ago, when this magnificent comic comedy was written.
From dirt to princes ... A stupid housewife became the wife of a minister. But does Senka have a hat?
The husband of absurd Zhivki Popovich received a high position. That's lucky! She is very happy.
Now she will show all the neighbors and girlfriends how the minister's wife should live!
First of all I will change all the furniture in the house. I'll buy the most expensive and massive. Live uncomfortably, uncomfortable. But respectable.
Secondly, I will save my daughter from her husband. It does not matter that she seems to like him. We need to find the rich, the prestigious. My daughter screams, demands not to interfere. Nothing, then wiser. Still thanks will tell.
Third, hiring a teacher on etiquette. It is urgent to adopt the manners of movie stars. I want to waste money, play casino, visit vernissages.
We must start smoking. And it would be good to have a lover ... Zhilka dreams about this.
But the happiness of capricious Zhibki does not last long. My husband was fired. Zivka sobs.
And she stayed at the broken trough. Dunka was not allowed to go to Europe.
A wonderful play of actors, beautiful scenery. We received great pleasure. Olga Bogdanova is gorgeous, they opened it in a new way. Separate scenes are simply delighted with their directorial development and playing all the artists on stage. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PLEASURE,
