The actors’ appeal

On Saturday, appealing to the audience after a showing of “Peri’s Love,” members of the Mayakovsky Theater company announced that its actors had signed letters of resignation as a protest against the historic theater’s demolition and the transfer of the company to a cinema in the city’s southern outskirts.

“We’re doing everything we can from our side, but we’re not being heard,” one actor said. “We’d like to ask you, dear audience, for your support on social media networks…if there are any journalists present here, please write about it.” On their way out, audience members, seeing that I was carrying a camera, approached me and begged me to publicize the theater’s plight.
