“The storyline was very easy to follow, and all three actors were excellent in their delivery. I especially enjoyed K.C. Khan’s performance. The play appeared to be very well directed.”

Erick Rozier

Splinter is a kind, light romantic comedy. You will laugh and be a little sad. You will get a huge boost of optimism. This play is about love of the theater, about friendship and fidelity, and about the ability to dream. This is a sensitive and touching story about the theatrical world, in which at times, it is difficult to distinguish what is an illusion and what is reality…and only human feelings remain unchanged here.

“Great short play! Very enjoyable! Thank you for bringing a small theater feel to the suburbs.”

– Galina Martirosyan

Dmitriy Yakubov: The performance was absolutely wonderful. It was a real discovery for the audience. This play is based on the masterpieces of French drama, but told in a new way. This is a very bright, light, romantic comedy that will not leave anyone indifferent. It is about kindness, [light- remove this word, it was already used and too many things in the list], friendship, fidelity, love for the theater, and creativity… (To read more visit page Interview with Dmitriy)
