The book is dedicated to the main Georgian theatre of the time in its golden age. The director of the majority of performances of the time was Kote Mardzhanishvili (1872-1933) the founder of the national theatre. The plays like Salome, Hamlet and others were among the best in his career. They all were decorated by Irakly Gamrikeli (1894-1943) who did the wrapper for this book as well. Gamrikeli preferred avant-garde style in his work, influenced by Stenberg brothers and Kirill Zdanevich.
