UrFU's Old House student theatre to perform Gogol's "Marriage"

Ural Federal University's Old House National Student Theatre will perform Nikolai Gogol's play "Marriage" this week.

The play will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday in the conference hall of the academic building on Kovalevskaya Street.

The play was first published in 1842. In December 2006, the school put on a production of the play in honor of the 40th anniversary of the theatre.

The story follows the indecisive civil servant Ivan Kuzmich Podkolyosin as he searches for a bride with the help of a matchmaker. Podkolyosin eventually finds a potential bride, but has to compete with other suitors in order to win her over.

Tickets can be purchased on the theatre's website.
