Winnie-the-Pooh and All the Others

A.A. Milne, B. Zakhoder. "Trivia game" in two acts

A little boy woke up one morning and saw a toy bear near his bed. Daddy, a writer and storyteller, had given his son a surprise gift. And from that moment on, the lives of both the boy and the bear, and all the friends and family of the boy and the bear, and even the storyteller dad, changed.
Alan Alexander Milne's tale of the teddy bear has long and firmly entered the Russian cultural context in Boris Zakhoder's translation. For us, the writer Milne is first and foremost Christopher Robin's dad and the narrator of stories about the adventures of his toy friends - Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Owl, Eeyore, Rabbit and all of Rabbit's relatives and acquaintances. And for us Christopher Robin is first of all the wisest, most powerful, experienced and determined man in a world where a straw hut disappears or bees make the wrong honey.

The play "Winnie-the-Pooh and All-That-If" is cheerful, windy, hooligan, as always children's performances of Galina Byzgu. Multilayered, like a birthday cake, it is intended for the whole family. Because it is about family. Not only about how animals led by Christopher Robin get into different stories and get out of them, but also about how dads appreciate, understand and support their sons, and about how sons learn from dads to be noble, strong in spirit and attentive to their neighbors.

This is a declaration of love to your childhood, the time when the Enchanted Forest was all around you and you were absolutely and utterly happy. It is a tale of friendship, caring, and the ability to take responsibility for those who believe in you - even if you are just a little boy and the person who needs you is just a teddy bear.
