    A challenge for you this week that if you solve will reveal an interesting piece of trivia

    Here is a poster for the world premier of a very well known play, one you will likely to be familiar with

    (1) Can you name the play? The Title does not correspond with the Russian title on the Poster

    (2) The Author?

    (3) The Theatre?

    (4) The city where it was performed?

    (5) And the year of this performance?

    Hints: The inspiration for this came from a post on this blog that appeared sometime within the past seven days

    In Red Cyrillic at the top you will see премьера which transcribes to prem’yera which unsurprisingly means premiere – using this you maybe able to work out some of the other printed words which will help provide some of the answers
