The author of the play “The Poisoned Tunic” is Nikolai Gumilyov. He wrote this work three years before the tragic death – in 1918. Poets and writers of the Silver Age could only resist the cruel reality of that era with the help of creative energy.
The text of the play “The Poisoned Tunic” is filled with the atmosphere of oriental poetic lyrics. The prototype of the protagonist, the wandering poet Imr, was one of the founders of Arab poetry, the legendary poet and warrior Imru al-Qais. The plot is based on real facts from his life and work.
Roman Viktyuk combined in his performance the last days of the poet’s life with his own work. Revealing the creation by revealing the fate of the creator is one of the most important methods of the stage director. This time he invited viewers to think about the destroyed generation of creators of the early 20th century.
