Mogilev region drama theatre to stage a play about act of terror at “Nord-Ost”

A play about the act of terror at “Nord-Ost” is to be directed at the small stage of Mogilev region drama theatre. The play is almost ready; the talks on copyright are being held, the theatre’s director Vladimir Petrovich told.

“We’ve been working on the play for about a month”, - Vladimir Petrovich added. “I wasn’t sure how audience would react to it; there could have been a hard-line response, as far as the topic is rather risky. But the readings held proved it to be necessary”.

A famous play “Nord-Ost” by Torsten Buchsteiner, translated into 13 foreign languages, is dedicated to a 57-hour hostage crisis, when on October 23, 2002 terrorists took the audience hostage (916 people) in Moscow theater centre that was showing the production of Nord-Ost. Most of the hostages were released and all terrorists were killed after the theatre was stormed by special forces. According to the official information, 130 hostages, including 10 children, died during the special operation.
