Star Child is a mono spectacle, the original idea of which comes from the Oscar Wilde classic story and turns into a fairy-tale for adults. Dina Korzun, the only actress in this show, will take 27 roles in 60 minutes. She says that this story is very modern and realistic, it is about the every-day choice for Good or Evil that people make. This play helps the spectators to face the eternal fight between the Love and the Hate, the Spiritual and the Material.

This performance is in Russian with English subtitles: 11 March, 7.30 pm.
