The unveiling of the memorial tablet to the outstanding playwright Grigori Izrailevich Gorin was held on December 14.


Grigori Izrailevich Gorin (real surname - Ofstein) is a playwright and a novelist. He was born on March 12, 1940 in the family of a soldier. After graduating from the I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (1963) he worked as an emergency doctor for several years. He started writing with the scenes for student "Club of the Merry and Inventive" (KVN), since 1960s he actively wrote satire and humorous stories and sketches in the press, the stories made fun of the lies and hypocrisy of the established social and personal relations, the dominance of the unprincipled, irresponsible and cowardly bureaucracy, the imitation of useful activities and sincere feelings, lazy and selfish indifference of the "stagnation" which was the disease that struck the pre-perestroika Soviet society.


In 1966 the first book of Grigori Gorin`s prose was issued - "Four in a single volume" (in collaboration with other authors), also the play "The Marriage for the whole Europe" was issued (in collaboration with A. Arkanov, Gorin`s co-author in the plays: "Banquet", staged 1968; "Small comedies of the big house", "Toreador", both staged 1973; "Solo for a Duet", 1975).


In the traditions of B.Brecht and E. Schwartz Gorin was basing on the sometimes paradoxical reframe of the paradigmatic storybooks, Gorin claims the priority of the reason over the stagnation ("The House That Swift Built", 1980), of the tolerance of national consciousness – over  the religious and national chauvinism ( "Memorial Prayer", 1989, based on the works of Sholem Aleichem), of the fascination of art - over the government ("Kin IV", 1991 – about the great English actor), of love - over the phantoms of prejudices, sometimes called "family honor" ("A plague on both your houses!", 1994, based on the Shakespeare's tragedy "Romeo and Juliet ").


Grigori Izrailevich Gorin died in Moscow on June 15, 2000.
