The Last Trolleybus
Aleksandr Volodin
This is a lyrical comedy based on the plays "Five Evenings" and "Notes of a Drunk Person" by Aleksandr Volodin.

This lyrical comedy performed on the chamber stage of the Theater is based on Alexander Volodin’s  plays “Five Evenings” and “Notes of a Drunk Person” and poems, and includes also the songs by Bulat Okudzhava.

A trolleybus is going along Nevsky Prospect - such a familiar Leningrad route. And this well-known route of life has several stops like Meeting, Love and Separation. This a confession story about how it is important not to part with your beloved ones...

The play turned out to be a lyrical, atmospheric performance where rules the magic of the words of two great contemporaries, where the images of that difficult time resurrect, and we, nevertheless, remember it with nostalgia and love. The sixties is the key time of that era, and to be more precise, the performance takes place on May, 9 in 1965, when the Victory Day was celebrated for the first time.
