The play “A Tomb for Boris Davidovich” is based upon the masterpiece novel of the same title which follows the events of the Great October Revolution from the point of view of the main character, Boris Davidovich Novski. This charmer and Don Juan, a poet and an artist rather than a revolutionary, a legendary figure of troubled times, encounters the burst of totalitarian Evil, an act to which he also had contributed. As a prisoner of the Soviet secret services, he has no alternative but the chance of escape through the defense of his own biography. His final struggle with Fediukin, the investigator of the newly installed power, is an attempt to maintain in the procedural documents the legendary tale of an extraordinary life, full of adventure and wonders.
Opening date: May 21, 2008.
Running time: 2 hours and 20 minutes with one intermission.
