In the early 80s, the artist returned to the capital, having received an offer to join the actor troupe of the Kiev Youth Theater. Here our hero soon became the leading artist.
Soon Grigory Gladiy decided to try directing himself.As a debut work in this role, the actor chose the production of “The Persistent Prince” based on the work of the famous playwright P. Calderon. That's just to put on the stage of the theater Gladii planned not the original version, but the free interpretation of the play of director Jerzy Grotowski. The performance, which contained hints of anti-Soviet views, was banned even before the premiere. Grigory Gladiy himself was subjected to housing searches. In the house of the actor, they found the “wrong” literature, after which our hero was forced to hide from the authorities in Lithuania with his companion - director Jonas Vaitkus.
