December 11 marks the centennial of Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008). On this day at the Moscow Art Theater, where he had a long-time friendship and creative collaboration (here his play “The Deer and Shalashovka” was staged by Oleg Yefremov), a unique event will take place, a literary evening “Yours A. Solzhenitsyn” featuring Yevgeny Mironov. Director Marina Brusnikina: “As a rule, the first associations with the name of Solzhenitsyn are a writer, an ideologist, a philosopher, a protagonist. That is how everyone knows him. We also wanted to show him as a very lonely person, who was at the primary stages of his career. We wanted to pay attention to the period of his development as a writer. The performance was based on his personal letters and texts from the moment he left the camp, was in exile, and before being awarded the Nobel Prize. “Your A. Solzhenitsyn” is the closing line of his letters, where he appears as a person, and not as a significant figure in Soviet literature.
