The Cheaters

Marcel Carné, Director: Rusudan Kobiashvili
In 2 Acts

Bar “Paradiso” – the Paradise of youth. On the chart: sex, drugs, modern music and denial of social norms… In this chaos newly born love is trampled, newly conceived life is slain and the truth is turned into a lie.

From the boards of the Iliauni Theatre, eleven young actors aided by a half a century old French classic will very sincerely tell you a story of their peer, who treat true feelings and values so insincerely that they finally end up cheating on others as well as their own selves.  And all this, as it is due, leads to a tragic finale.

Is it always so hard to be young?!
