The Tale of Ivan vs. Ivan

Written by Nikolai Gogol

Adapted from Nikolai Gogol's Novella by
Aleksandar Lukac & The Company

A hilarious and blackly comic satire of friendship, greed, boredom and folly, The Tale of Ivan vs. Ivan tells the story of two inseparable friends, both named Ivan, who quarrel over Ivan Nikiforovych’s new gun. Chaos ensues as they attempt to fight out their differences in court, and their entire village is swiftly drawn into their all-out war of absurdist proportions. This new adaptation of The Tale of Ivan vs. Ivan is a blend of several theatrical genres amalgamated into one truly unique performance style.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
