Nina Sadur
PANNOCHKA
on motive of the tale N.V.GOGOL "Viy"

           
                        

    Nina Sadur's play "Pannochka" is written on motive to tale N.V.Gogol "Viy" N.Sadur's dramatic art is a special sensation of the author, the mystical approach in perception and reflection to reality.

    All events are developed in the strange, "bewitched", place where appears "the scientific person" , the Kiev seminarist, philosopher Khoma Brut…Even before appearance of the philosopher Cossacks (but can this not at all cossacks?...) Javtukh, Spirid and Dorosh have conversation "scientific and dispute, most that on is the dangerous", whether there were on the earth miracles. They recollect the Cossacks lieutenant’s daughter, a witch Pannochka, anticipating its appearance before the philosopher. In this strange (or terrible?) place is not old yet the wench Khveska. Both women try to possess the love of Khoma Brut which rushes about between them. In whose party the scale pan on which the life of the philosopher is put will be inclined? Towards fatal, fatal passion ("Both sweet and a nausea in it were added") or normal quiet home life?

    Here the reality intertwines with mysticism: "Horror stories" and heartfelt conversations about life, "Devilry" and a merry feast with hot dumplings, night funeral service of the revived dead person, witty dialogues and ritual games, "night dances and flights" of Protagonists, all it "cooks in a copper" of Gogol humour. Terribly?
