The theater festival is running in Saint Petersburg on 13-18 May. The program of the festival includes eight productions of various genres from Russian-language theaters from Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, and Moldova. Belarus is represented by two companies. The Grodno Oblast Puppet Theater showed the production “Demon” based on the poem by Mikhail Lermontov on 15 May. The Brest Academic Drama Theater will wrap up the festival.

The Brest Academic Drama Theater participates in the festival for the fourth time and will have the honor to close the festival for the second time, Olesya Burdina said.

“A Respectable Wedding”, a comedy based on the play by German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, will be staged at the Baltic House Theater-Festival on 18 May. It is one of the most prominent productions by the Brest Academic Drama Theater in the past few seasons. The production directed by Igor Kazakov was warmly received at the TEART festival in Minsk and during the theater's tour in Mogilev and Vitebsk.

In June, the Brest Academic Drama Theater will bring “A Respectable Wedding” and several other productions to Gomel.
