The Théâtre la Seizième invites you to the first play of its 2013-2014 season: Moi, dans les ruines rouges du siècle.
Sasha Samar, born in Ukraine in 1969, tries to become famous at the age of 7, hoping he will be found back by his mother from whom he was separated in the cradle. Between his uncompromising father, his depressed girlfriend and his friend actor who became rich imitating Lenin, Sasha continues his quest in a more and more weakened Soviet Union.

"Tears are never far from laughter in this powerful fresco where Sasha Samar tells the moving and epic story of his life turned into legend." La Presse, Montréal
"Exuberant, tragic and twisted, the fable invented by Olivier Kemeid in Moi, dans les ruines rouges du siècleplays brillantly with Russian history and transcends it." Voir Montréal

Moi, dans les ruines rouges du siècle won the price of the critics in Montreal.
