Moscow Art Theatre School
Theatre workshop of Evgeny Pisarev
All that Evgeny Pisarev’s students from the Moscow Art Theatre School needed to stage a story of passion, deceit, delusion and murder, is Anton Chekhov’s very first play, Fatherlessness, that he wrote at the age of 18, and a wooden wall and a bench as a set. Minimalistic costumes and set, according to the authors of the performance, liberates the plot of the play from its time borders and brings it to the height of an eternal story of human passions, of interest for all generations. Humor and tragedy come together in this performance, allowing the stage director to fully unleash the acting potential of the graduate students.
