Sun Line at the Meyerhold Center

May 12

Many consider Ivan Vyrypaev the best comtemporary Russian playwright, and so every new production based on his work is an event — especially if it’s also a completely new play. Directed by Viktor Ryzhakov, the artistic director of the Meyerhold Center, the plot of “Sun Line” is rather simple: a quarrel between the spouses that goes all night long. This is classic Vyrypayev, with repetitive dialogue and abusive language. What’s unexpected is a somewhat Hollywood ending. The incredible and intense acting of Yuliya Peresild, known primarily as a film actress, and Andrei Burkovsky make “Sun Line” one of the main premiers of the season.
