"In this premiere ... Simonov showed a remarkable sense of theatre. Ability to build drama of the well-know plot  as his own story, with its original, different to generaly accepted view. Individual vision of heroes - from the perspective of a young man of our time. Characters ... close to the viewer, they are among us, though not exactly - they are artistically transformed. And anyway - very lively - those you  can feel for and be distressed for "(" Petersburg Theatre Journal ").
