Directed by Kirill Serebrennikov, who collaborated with the Moscow Art Theater named after Chekhov, is no longer mentioned on the official portal of the theater in the section "Authors of performances", as well as in the programs for the production of "Forest". Now it just says "director".

However, the biography of Kirill Serebrennikov remained in the "Personalities" section.

"This is all, of course, "soviet" deja vu. But in the case of the Moscow Art Theater named after Chekhov is even interested in how this shameful instruction of the authorities was carried out. The performance "Forest" has been on the stage of the Moscow Art Theater for 18 years, and this is the first year when the director was called "DIRECTOR" with a capital R. Someday, I'm sure, we will find out who ordered this to be done. And it won’t be just some kind of “Officer”, there will certainly be a surname here”, - Serebrennikov wrote in his TG channel.

In March, it became known that Serebrennikov left for Paris after the Khamovniki Court of Moscow overturned his conditional sentence. Earlier, the director was found guilty of embezzlement of state funds issued by the Ministry of Culture and intended to finance the project. The request was granted. The court noted that Serebrennikov covered the fine and the damage caused, did not allow violations during the probationary period.
