Two for the Seesaw Tickets
A Russian twist on the poignant and compelling American drama Two for the Seesaw is performed by two of the country’s greatest actors, Chulpan Khamatova and Kirill Safonov.
Set in New York, the play follows the course of an intense and tempestuous affair between a brooding Nebraska lawyer who has relocated to the Big Apple to escape his marriage, and an eccentric dancer he meets at a party. Their relationship comes into jeopardy as their lingering ties to previous partners and the differences in their backgrounds and temperaments come to the fore.
