About Performance:

"Pass" - the path of Golgotha – not everybody stand it and died. The history of our country, the story of the national shock from which we have not yet survived and we continue to walk on the magic circle. Shalva Dadiani Drama Theater is preparing to present to its spectators Nikoloz Sabashvili's version of Chuberi tragedy, story which was created based on the documentary chronicles Let's look at once again in the "mirror of the soul" that we no longer go on a magic circle and start a new life with the sense of civil responsibility.

The history of Zugdidi Theatre dates back to 1868. Theatre's very first performance was Molière's "The Doctor in Spite of Himself". Since that day, for more than 150 years, theatrical life in the city has not stopped.

According to the jubilee magazine published in 1968 to mark the 100th anniversary of the theatre becomes clear that at that time there were already existing two different creative groups. They staged plays based on both foreign and Georgian plays independently from each other. It is also widely known that such famous theatre figures as Lado Meskhishvili, Shalva Dadiani, Valerian Gunia, Alexander Imedashvili and others came to Zugdidi Theatre for a tour.

Georgian writer Anton Purtseladze, who translated and staged plays, made a great contribution to the theatrical life of Zugdidi.

Since the 1930s, in parallel with the Rustaveli Theatre, the plays "Lamara" and "Anzor" have been staged in Zugdidi Theatre
A well-known theatre director Temur Chkheidze made his first career steps at Zugdidi Theatre, where he came together with Avto Makharadze and Janri Lolashvili.

The period when a prominent theatrical figure Sasha Egutia led the theatre, is considered to be its Golden age. 

Zugdidi theatre continues its creative life to this day and has received numerous awards and prizes during its existence. In 2018, the theatre was on tour in Amsterdam, from which it returned with great success.
