Dramatis Personae Tolstoi (m), Russian author; Dostoevskii (m), Russian author.
Synopsis “Tolstoi and Dostoevskii never met. That's wrong, their families
should have been friends. This is what the organisers of a Congress decide,
when they hire actors to sit in a hall behind glass. The heroes adapt themselves
to the absurd, only Dostoevskii rebels.”—Synopses, http://www.theatre.spb.ru/newdrama/8_landsk/synopses.htm,
