Giorgi Eristavi, Director: Maia Chartolani
Vaudeville in 2 Acts

In the 19th century Tbilisi it is thus: the kind and the generous always wins against the miser and the mean; the amusing and the witty makes fun of the reserved and the jealous, the lovers always do it their way and everything ends happily. However, happy end is nothing compared to the tricks and the qui-pro-quo, that overwhelms the characters and the audience.

Karapeta, Ivanika, Martiruza… So well known to the audience, the characters of Giorgi Eristavi’s comedy go from one play to the other to tell the story of two famous vaudeville’s in one performance.
