Performance Senior Suite 13:

Ray Cooney authored over twenty comedies, which are translated into forty languages and staged at theaters in many countries. It was calculated that about one hundred million tickets for his plays had been sold globally. Out of Order, running under the title Senior Suite 13 in the Gorky Drama Theater, was enthusiastically received by British critics and won a 1991 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in Britain.

The farce staged by Nikolay Popkov has been running at the Rostov Drama Theater for 14 years. Times have changed, so have the performers; however, the comedy’s success with the Rostov public remains unchanged. Spectators come to watch the play over and over again and watch it with the same interest they did at the first performance.

What is the catch of this simple comedy of situations about a feckless MP and heartthrob and his overly shy secretary? In the mastery of the British playwright Ray Cooney, who piles up absurd situations and troubles that his characters get into every minute? In the likeable and familiar characters? In the charm of actors who play them? It seems that everything clicked. And spectators, taking their seat, find themselves in a light, spacious and cozy senior suite of a London hotel overlooking Big Ben, where they have three hours to switch off and have a rest, watching adventures of the amusing and nice characters.
