This book is dedicated to agitation in art forms and particularly in theatre and performance form. More than that, the author described a new form developed for mass agitation and education in entertaining form - ‘costume evening’. Starting from discussion of pros and cons of such event the book continues with organization details (creating plan and promotion - “Costumes must present political, industrial and domestic topics”), recommendation list of topics, consultation, and goes to description of the event itself. Interesting section of the book called “We didn’t forget our daily work” in which is listed all activities that were held at the club.
Overall, an amusing yet informative edition on one of the forms of agitation and propaganda in the early Soviet Union which included elements of theatre and performance.
