«Late love» is one of the most heart-touching plays by Alexander Ostrovsky. . Gerasim Porfirich Margaritov, once a famous Moscow lawyer, now a retired bankrupt official through no fault of his, rents a room with his marriageable daughter, Ludmila. She is in love with the owner's son – Nikolay, who is a careless young man. Blinded by love, she’s willing to perpetrate a fraud and to steal a very important document from her father for Nikolay’s sake. «Late love» is a brilliant exposé of the world around us. It is a story about life, which is full of temptations and lies, family relations, and of course all-consuming love. Throughout the play we witness the evolution of the characters, leading to the conventionally happy denouement.
