The protests of the employees of the Blagoevgrad Drama Theater continue

For two weeks, the actors and employees of the Blagoevgrad Drama Theater “Nikola Vaptsarov” used their lunch break for a peaceful protest with a request to restore the work of the last director of the theater Margarita Macheva. The protest of the actors is publicly and personally supported by the chairman of the Union of Artists in Bulgaria – Hristo Mutafchiev.

Tensions in the theater were provoked by the decision of the Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC), which reinstated Alexander Galperin, who was disciplined by the Minister of Culture in 2018, as director.

The team of the cultural institution issued an Open Letter in defense of the current director:

“We want Mrs. Margarita Macheva to continue to build the face of the theater as it is now. “We stand firmly behind the way the theater has been run for the last year and a half,” the protesters said.

They put forward serious arguments in support of Macheva – “financial stability, calm atmosphere and creative self-confidence” of the theater, managed by 7 temporary directors over the past 10 years.

“The only thing we can do at this stage is to express our opinion every day during the lunch break,” said the theater staff.
