“The world of art is a mirror, and the artist’s mirror is easily warped and fragile.”
Hamazkayin’s Nubar Khachadourian" Theatrical Troupe in Australia staged a comedy under the auspices of the primate, Archbishop Haigazoun Najarian. The two-act play, Pakhdavor Hayre (The fortunate father) was performed on March 16, 2019, at the Zenith Hall, which was full of theatergoers.
“Glorious writing fills the pages of our history,” Azniv Ingilizian said in her opening statement. Then the play began. The satirical work kept the audience engaged from beginning to end, spreading happiness and high spirits.
The author and director, Garo Khachigian, has remained faithful to theater and his love for the art showed. Being an actor, playwright, and director in Armenian theater, especially in the faraway and peaceful shores of Australia, where assimilation takes its toll, takes courage and persistence.
The play was a balm for the public, exhausted with their daily struggle.
The 19 young players took the stage with skill and were believable in their roles. Their energy brought the play to life and kept the audience laughing.
