Vanyushin's children 16+
Sergey Naydenov drama

Fathers that wear rags

Do make their children blind;

But fathers that bear bags

Shall see their children kind.


W. Shakespeare "King Lear"

Vanyushin, a father of a large family, who is the main character of S. Naydenov's play – ¬is the Russian King Lear.


Only in the old age both fathers opened the eyes to their children, who unnoticeably, living side by side with their parents, became indifferent, mercantile egoists. We can see the same thing nowadays in families, where ever-busy mother and father are something like an ATM for their child: why spend time and energy on his education, if it is much easier and more convenient to pay off from the child, who requires attention and love?


Vanyushin bitterly reaps the fruits of his omission as a parent and an educator and still hopes to reach out to the children, to distract them from the worship of material values, to seed reasonable, good, eternal things in their souls. But it is late, time is lost – there is no place to sow. Vanyushin’s terrible dreams-phantasmagorias become reality.
