Overview

Gabriadze Theatre
Written and directed by Rezo Gabriadze

A tragic tale of two trains in love, Ramona—a shunting engine only able to move 300 meters each way—waits in a railway station for her heroic Trans-Siberian locomotive, Ermon, to return from his journey across the railroads of Russia. Georgian playwright and director Rezo Gabriadze is the architect of a unique theatrical style—one that marries humor and heartbreak in a world of marionettes and folk elegance. Returning to Spoleto Festival USA for a second appearance (The Battle of Stalingrad, 2003), Gabriadze Theatre offers a production full of extraordinary scenes created from ordinary objects; the director and his puppeteers crystallize, in miniature, the joy and heartbreak of love and the unrecoverable past.

Performed in Georgian and Russian with English supertitles.
