Nadezhda Ptushkina

The Battle of the Sexes Russia Style

€ 18.80

In this new translation, western readers have a chance to discover why Ptushkina`s work holds such wide appeal in the Russian theatre.

Main description: Nadezhda Ptushkina`s plays reflect her keen interest in constructing multidimensional characters that reflect the myriad ways people are affected by today`s turbulent world. Often writing strong female roles, she does not shy away from exploring the sometimes tragic implications that lie behind her comical, almost farcical scenes.

Ptushkina questions the nature of love, and explores the boundaries between the spiritual and the base, the constructive and the destructive, that lie within every human being. Conflict between the sexes constitutes the core of Ptushkina`s plays, in which she warns the audience against confusing sex and love. Ptushkina rejects any notion that men and women are the same, seeing gender differences rather than personality differences as the main source of tension between men and women. Her plays thus dwell on this `battle of the sexes` and the resulting lack of respect for women that she sees in today`s Russia.

In this new translation, western readers have a chance to discover why Ptushkina`s work holds such wide appeal in the Russian theatre.
