“Uzbekneftegaz” and “Theatre Friends Club” were the general sponsors and organizers of the pre-holiday event. It should be noted that the “Theatre Friends Club”, created on the initiative of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev within the frameworks of the meeting with the intelligentsia on August 3, 2017, is aimed at enhancing the creative and technical potential of the theatre, supporting and stimulating the artists' groups, staging new productions and much more.
The playwright Aleksandr Volodin, who had a delicate feeling of life and love, wrote the play “Five Evenings” in 1958 with the following comments: “These are the evenings of searching, losing and happy finding of the one that everyone needs: love, warmth, pity. This play is about being true to yourself, your essence, that if a person goes all the way and does not betray himself, he will come to happiness...”
The famous play is familiar to a wide audience for the same-name film directed by Nikita Mikhalkov with Lyudmila Gurchenko as the female lead. As for the lead actress Nonna Grishaeva, she is also known as an actress of film and television, an impressionist, an anchorwoman and a singer.
The organizers envisaged a special event for young persons: gifted students of theatre academies and colleges will be provided with 200 incentive tickets for the play “Five Evenings”, specially allocated for students.
