kitchen sink drama


kitchen sink drama
«Драма у кухонной раковины». Это натуралистическая бытовая пьеса об обыденных, часто неприглядных, сторонах жизни. Такие пьесы были популярны в 1950-е гг. после постановки драмы Дж. Осборна 'Look Back in Anger' («Оглянись во гневе»), где почти всё действие происходит на кухне. Пьесы такого жанра критиковали притворство и пустоту среднего класса, отражаемых в drawing room comedies («салонных пьесах») Н. Кауарда и Т. Раттигана в 1930—40-е гг.

I hate kitchen sink drama. When I go to the theatre I want to be entertained and amused, not reminded of the sordid side of life. — Я ненавижу «кухонные драмы». Когда я хожу в театр, я хочу развлекаться и получать удовольствие, и не хочу, чтобы мне напоминали о низменной, отвратительной стороне жизни.
