The protests in Belarus have now been going on regularly and systematically for six months. As an expression of their solidarity with the people and the theater community in Belarus, theaters around the world are reading Kureichick’s play. “The Insulted.

Belarus Worldwide Reading Project” has organized over 120 events (readings, productions, films, videos, radio broadcasts, translations, play publications) in 77 venues and 25 countries. Translations have been done to 20 languages.

Andrei Kureichik is a well-known Belarusian playwright/screenwriter/producer and a member of the Coordination Council, founded by the opposition in Belarus. His fictional 7-character play tells the story of the first month of the Belarusian revolution, its ups and downs on the eve of the inevitable democratization of the country after 26 years of dictatorship.

All characters have real prototypes, in some you will recognize former and current leaders of the country, and in others incredible Belarusians who have gone out to battle the totalitarian machine, sometimes at the cost of their lives, their freedom, and their loved ones.

Kureichik tells of the tragic escalation of violence employed by the authorities to repress freedom-seeking Belarusians, and how solidarity, truth and faith in human values inevitably lead to victory over evil.
