On October 9, 2019, at 19.00, the State Republican Academic Korean Theater of Musical Comedy (158 Bogenbai Batyr St. (corner of Seifullin St.) will be opening the 88th theatrical season with the premiere of the play “Tree”, based on Khan Din’s play “Do not rock the tree”.
Han Ding’s “Don’t Swing the Tree” is a psychological drama that once again raises the question of the unification of North and South Korea. In the performance, on the border between them, on the 38th parallel, two Koreans from these countries accidentally meet during a severe flood. Helping each other to avoid mortal danger, they climb a large tree, where their political contradictions are clarified. After a quarrel, a truce ensues, which develops into a human friendship, which is facilitated by the girl they saved. The main idea of the author of the play is that unification is possible when people want it.
