DRAMA. Georgia - Several Amusing and Sometimes Thought – Provoking Episodes About Soaps

Production Company: Georgian Public Radio. Author, Producer & Director: Zurab Kandelaki. Sound engineer: Bako Khvichia.

Synopsis
Any kind of joke contains a grain of truth in any joke, so does our radio-joke about soaps. Together with certain amusing stories there are some thought-provoking episodes, both from the nearest past and the present day as well. (Meetings mania, certain people's attitude towards culture, dreaming about a better future)

As for the names of soaps, in the Soviet Union all the soaps used to have their own names. After the Soviet symbols, for some reason, the soap manufacturers favored opera most of all. The soap "Carmen" used to be very popular, also the soaps "Tosca" and "Chio -Chio-San."

It was due to these soap names that the fantasy of the authors of the radio-play was directed to the free improvisation and encouraged them to mix up various music styles.
