There are three major sections in the book.

And here, as reflected in the sections “Bikchantaev speaks”, “Bikchantaev rehearses” and “They write about Bikchantaev”, the book answers the question “What is he doing?”. It reflects here and now the quality of the theater that exists today, ”explained Gulshat Fattakhova.
