Yury Solomin's new production is based on the well-known screenplay Make Way for Tomorrow by Viña Delmar. It is a striking story about an elderly couple who are in thrall to their children's indifference. In spite of all the difficulties and injusticies that life brings them, the forced separation, boundless love, respect and affection for each other, allow Lucy and Barkley Cooper, played by Lyudmila Polyakova and Vladimir Nosik, to have hope for the future.
