The performance is a self-guided work of the graduates of VGIK acting faculty (studio of the People's artist of the Russian Federation and filmmaker A.Mikhailov).
Bright, rough, emotional and assertive acting is filled with expressive means. A show of brotherhood is played in front of the audience: word-battles, fights, outstanding jokes, thunders, crispy-whiskey battle royals.
The key to understand brothers` relationship is in the set design. A dirty bachelor digs with load of old rubbish and flotsam and jetsam. Brothers` rooms are beside each other, doors are covered with their father`s blood. The fault for the murder lies on both of brothers. The claim that it is just an accident is pure absurd.
Games and fights of two grown-up brothers just prove the fact that they need each other.
The duel of confessions escalates situation and gives the impression that brothers are about to kill each other… however, without these fights their life will be boring and lonesome.
Discordant story of the Connor brothers can both frighten the audience and make them laugh.
