Play! in the Barn: Is it Feasible

Is it Feasible? is a one-man show based on Bulgarian short stories by Chudomir and performed by Zlatomir Moldovanski. Bulgaria is a nation with a history that spans over thirteen centuries. It has been a khanate, a principality, a kingdom, a communist state and finally — a free-market social democracy. The character and mannerisms of the Bulgarian people are unique, authentic, and unparalleled. Chudomir’s short stories and anecdotes truly contain those quintessential intricacies of Bulgarian culture that “expose, humiliate, outrage and ultimately make us laugh.”
