Andrey Kureichik, Script Writer

This exciting young playwright is well-known not only in Belarus, but also in Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union. Andrey Kureichik is said to have found the right tone. He is witty and ironic, but never crosses the line separating showiness from offence.

Kureichik does not attempt to continue the tradition of intellectual theatre and cinema. Instead, he wants to make the audience relax and have fun. His scenarios are used in light entertainment comedies attracting young lovers who want a good night out. And the cinemas continue to be full.

The success of his works among the Belarusian audience is often explained by the fact that the younger generation is generally tired of politics: what’s the point of raking over old problems if it doesn’t help solve them? However, Andrey Kureichik is always ready for interviews, including discussions about poignant and socially relevant issues. For him, interviews are a platform for self-expression, along with personal PR.
