Rehearsals of “The Man Eater” by Ivan Radoev have begun in the Pleven Theater


In the “Ivan Radoev” Drama and Puppet Theater in Pleven, table rehearsals of “The Man-Eater” began. The performance is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the death of the great playwright and poet Ivan Radoev, whose name the Pleven theater also bears. This was announced by theater producer Marina Chesner.
The director is Orhan Tair, the scenography is entrusted to Larisa Nagorska, and the music is to Asen Antonov.
The actors Bistra Okereke, Valentin Vassilev, Gennadiy Nikolov, Doriana Galabova, Ekaterina Stoyanova, Irena Nencheva, Krasimira Kuzmanova, Lenko Gurkov, Mariyan Stefanov, Nina Goranovski, Orhan Tair, Petyo Krastev are in the roles.
Bistra Okereke – the first professional actress of African origin in Bulgaria – was hired especially for the role of the Man-Eater.
“My Man-Eater doesn’t need to be modernized, we deliberately modernize it. After almost 50 years, it is relevant again, so it will be in the time in which it was created. And the big theme that excites me is that as then , as well as today, old people, under the compulsion of the time we live in, remain alone, far from their children, from their relatives,” says director Orhan Tair.
“If in the last 30 years this satirical comedy, weaving the tragic history of the socialist man, was perceived only as a criticism of totalitarianism, then the performance of the Pleven theater under the direction of Orhan Tair aims to go beyond these frameworks and reveal the genius of the text of Ivan Radoev, who made it universal for the Bulgarian situation,” adds Marina Chesner.
“Man Eater” is expected to premiere at the end of January 2024.
