Blaine County will get to experience an exceptional video of a recent New York City production, the essential play about the Ukrainian – Russian War. ‘The Two Swans” will be showing at the Argyros Theater ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY, August 22, 2023.
“The Two Swans:Vladimir/Volodymyr” is a play in 2 acts. Not only a historical drama it is wryly satirical as it traces the Russian-Ukrainian War through the backgrounds of the two principles involved, Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky. A couple of their own shortened speeches becomes a means of tracing how the conflict unfolded. It becomes a gem of inspired writing based on thorough research. Many little-known facts will be revealed as the compelling character development of the 12 roles tightens its grip. The subject matter is frequently lightened with humor in this charismatic theater work.
Quite simply, there has never been a play about military conflict the likes of “Two Swans”, written in Ukraine during the war. Translated into Ukrainian, its world premiere in Kyiv, Ukraine is only waiting for the end of the war to arrive.
“The Two Swans” will be shown in the Bailey Theater at the Argyros at 7:00pm. Admission is free, donations to Ukrainian relief agencies will be accepted.
