The production director is Tatyana Arkhiptsova. The rehearsals for the play were emotional, like “in the hot summer of Covid.” “Olga Mikhailovna Yakovleva is an absolute maximalist in the theater,” says director Tatyana Arkhiptsova. – Argues “to hell” when he disagrees. If she likes it, she laughs happily. She gets angry when she doesn’t understand and seeks clarity… ”In addition to Olga Yakovleva and Vladimir Timofeev, the play stars: Alena Khovanskaya, Sofya Shidlovskaya, Margarita Yakimova…

In the center of Rome, in a tiny apartment, five young actors have just finished reading a play for their future performance. Without work, without money, without love… With love it is even more difficult. The genre is a situation comedy with recognizable characters. “In a sense, we follow the path of traditional commedia dell’arte: there is acting improvisation and even masks appear in our special sense,” says director Sergei Tonyshev. “But first of all, this is an Italian comedy because it was written by Italians, about Italians in Italy, and it’s very funny.”
