The sketch for the play was born in the course of the "Electrification" theatre workshop, which was held at the Novokuznetsk Drama Theatre under the direction of Alexander Vislov. The sketch will be advanced and made into a proper performance special for the Platonov Festival.
All the Russian theatre community began to talk about the young directors Angelina Migranova and Rodion Sabirov after they put on the play "5 mm /h", which was nominated for the "Golden Mask" Award this year. In their new work, they put together the story of Platonov and his letters to his wife.
A cow separated from a calf suffers. A schoolboy Vasya Rubtsov, the son of a trackman, takes on the animal’s pain for the loss of its loved one. And soon the boy gets a new experience – an encounter with death.
The story was written in 1938 and published after the death of the author. The directors and the artists explore the feelings of loss, expectation, ignorance, the collision of life and death in the sketch.
