I’ve written more than 70 plays, 40 of which have been staged in virtually every theatre in Russia, CIS (the Commonwealth of Independent States), the Baltic states, eastern Europeen countries, China, Japan, Germany, Scotland, Israel. The list of theatres (not yet complete) is available here (in Russian).

Since 1997 I have enjoyed first place measured by quantity of shows and spectators (Source “Modern drama” - “Sovremennaya dramaturgiya” journal). Some of my shows have run for more than ten years (example “Rojdestvenskie grezy” – “Christmas dream” – following my play “While she was dying” in the Moscow Art Theatre).

My scripts have been screened into nine full-length films. From time to time I have fulfilled the role as stage director, further detail is available on my website covering shows “Sixes” in Scotland National Theatre and “Strange woman” in Moscow theatrical enterprise “Our home.”

As a film director I have also completed three full-length films.

Updates on the site:

This time, the news is not about the Washington Theater. MA Bulgakov (Seattle), the premiere of the play "While she was dying" took place. The news is that this play ran for several years (according to information on the Internet, from 2009 to 2015), and the management of the theater showed itself to be extremely dishonest. Here are excerpts (19 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-LfO1LRjG4 and another 17 minutes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCkvxewHkWI, dated 2013. Directed by Igor Musienko. The theater management made no attempts to contact the author and did not find it necessary to burden itself with any financial obligations. We have downloaded these excerpts and intend to address this issue through the appropriate organizations in Washington state. Now a lawyer has been instructed to do this. Judging by the excerpts, the performance seems to be good. It is very disappointing to quarrel with the theater. But enough is enough to ignore and discriminate against Russian playwrights.

And here is another theater that did not consider it necessary to inform the author about the premiere (although he asked permission to stage it). This is an amateur theater. Unlike some other authors, Ptushkina never takes money from amateur theaters (although, you won't believe, every second amateur theater offers money). But it would be nice for the author to find out what the premiere is, to see excerpts, posters, programs, filming of the auditorium during the performance. Earlier, 30-40 years ago, authors sent congratulations to the theater on the premiere. So, in essence, this case is also discrimination and ignorance of the author. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VA8XXyllcY

In Krakow, the STU Theater began showing performances based on the play "While she was dying". The official premiere is scheduled for October 2021. The author is invited. And I am very pleased with this. The play was staged by the famous Polish director Miroslav Gronovsky (Miroslław Gronowski). "O sześćdziesięcioletniej starej pannie opowiada z kolei sztuka „Kiedy sobie znowu umierała” Nadieżdy Ptuszkiny, jednej z najpopularniejszych autorek rosyjskiego teatru. Kobieta mieszka z matką, której ulubionym pytaniem jest to o wnuki. Zmęczona presją córka postanawia zająć jej głowę… płomiennym romansem. - Trzeba mieć wielką siłę i równie wielką wiedzę o świecie, by „sobie chcieć umierać” najdalej jutro albo może za tydzień, miesiąc, rok, a wszystko po to, by wyzwolić w sobie i w swoim otoczeniu jeszcze większą wolę życia i miłości. Zapewne z tego powodu dla Nadieżdy Ptuszkiny istotne było, by w polskiej wersji tytułu sztuki pozostawić słowa „sobie znowu”, choć autorzy opracowań filologicznych używają wersji tytułu „Kiedy ona umierała”. Ta różnica jest bardzo ważna dla zrozumienia intencji starej kobiety, której działania są napędem całej opowieści - podkreśla Mirosław Gronowski, reżyser spektaklu. W rolach głównych: Anna Tomaszewska, Beata Rybotycka, Aldona Jankowska, Krzysztof Pluskota, Kamila Bestry i Anka Graczyk. Scenografię przygotowała Katarzyna Wójtowicz, kostiumy Ewa Gronowska, a autorką opracowania muzycznego jest Małgorzata Przedpełska-Bieniek." (Wyborcza, Kraków)

On December 12, Valentin Iosifovich Gaft died. A great artist. I was lucky that he played in my play, and that we communicated closely for a whole year. And together we went on tour with the play "The Old Maid". He played in this performance brilliantly, with great personal pleasure. The audience accepted him in this role with love and tenderness. This photo was kindly sent to me by Larisa Savankova. Who still plays in the play "The Old Maid". This photo is from the premiere of the performance (1998).

At the National Theater. Vasile Alexandri in Iasi (Romania) On November 27, 2015, the premiere of the play "While she was dying" by Nadezhda Ptushkina took place. The director of the play is Emil Gazhu. This is the most beloved and most successful performance in the city of Iasi. Finally, on March 7, 2020, the author was able to attend this performance. Nadezhda Mikhailovna liked the performance very much.

At the Russian Theater. Lermontov (Abakan) in March 2020, the premiere of the play "While she was dying" took place. The play goes under the same name as the play, and, as the director Eduard Shakhov wrote to the author, the Abakan audience likes the name and draws their attention to the play. The play goes on with great success.

On December 27, 2019, the Baltic House Theater-Festival Theater in St. Petersburg hosted the premiere of the play "Family as a Gift" based on Nadezhda Ptushkina's play "While she was dying". The theater invited Nadezhda Ptushkina to St. Petersburg for 3 days to get acquainted with the theater staff and to watch the performance, which took place on February 23, 2020. Nadezhda Ptushkina highly appreciated the hospitality of the theater. She was well received.

On January 19, 2020, the Internet presentation of Inna Lesova's book "The Last Gift", published by the Bridges of Culture publishing house, took place. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8rAWxi_iJg&t=2493s . Nadezhda Ptushkina spoke at this conference. For technical reasons, the image did not work. Only a voice. Nadezhda Ptushkina was represented by this photograph.

On December 10, the premiere of the well-known play by Nadezhda Ptushkina "While she was dying" took place in Moscow. Entreprise "Theatrical Agent", which created this performance, gave it another name - "A Tale for Adults". On December 10 and 11, the play "A Tale for Adults" took place in the big hall of the "Commonwealth of Taganka Actors" theater with great success. The next performance is on January 14, 2020 in the same hall. Most of the tickets have already been sold. It's nice.

Late news. It just became known that on April 12, 2019, the premiere of Nadezhda Ptushkina's play "While she was dying" took place at the A.P. Chekhov Sakhalin International Theater Center.

On October 18, 2019, the premiere of the play "Abnormal" ("Variyatka") took place at the Republican Theater of Belarusian Drama (Minsk). The play is performed in Belarusian.

We have already written about the premiere at the Trans-Baikal Regional Drama Theater (Chita) of the play "Bravo, Laurencia!" And so we received a letter from the head of the literary-drama department of the theater, Ksenia Razdobreeva:

Hello, Nadezhda Mikhailovna.

Well, we have already played several premiere performances, another one today - and I can say that the premiere went well, the audience accepted the performance. Congratulations on the premiere! Several materials were published in the media:

"Radio Russia-Chita": http://gtrkchita.ru/rr_news/?id=6370

"GTRK-Chita" http://gtrkchita.ru/news/?id=24064

Author's program of the journalist "Radio Russia-Chita" Elena Knyazeva http://gtrkchita.ru/rr_news/?id=6533

There is a review in the guest of our site :

Larissa: Congratulations to all Chita theatergoers with a new performance - "Bravo, Laurencia!" At first glance, an uncomplicated plot, as if nothing touching, but with the appearance on the stage of Mary Ivanna (as far as I understood, this role is played by Elena Safronova), the hall revived and began to observe what was happening with even greater interest. Excellent performance of the role of MaryIvanna! The performance is interesting and sincere. They write words of gratitude to the guest book, which is located in the foyer of the theater.

Here's a link to bow after the first show: https://vk.com/zab.teatr?z=video-20197581_456239203%2F83d21231bd4ed70d6b%2Fpl_post_-20197581_5294

The press also has reviews about the performance. In addition, we are carrying the play "Bravo, Laurencia!" on a tour to Khabarovsk, which will take place from May 21 to May 31 - I think there will also be reviews there.

Yours faithfully, Ksenia Razdobreeva head of literary-drama part of the theater.
