The new artistic director of the Batumi Drama Theater, Aleksandre Kantaria, chose the play "The Disgraced" by the classic of Georgian literature, Mikheil Javakhishvili, as his first performance. The director found a new title for the play based on this play – “The Way of the World”.
An intense story, clearly drawn characters, depth of the story in Javakhishvili style, a wide range of community, clearly palpable symbolism, which make the audience ponder over the fate of Georgia - This is the creative charm and intrigue that the upcoming performance offers.
Classics is modern at all times . . .
