Most critics concluded that "Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Times" by Joanna Wichowska was a controversial production both for the First Theatre and for the Lviv theatre scene. Still, it was seen as a positive step for art for the country. Following the premier in July 2018, the troupe has been receiving invitations to perform at festivals: the Golden Lion
2018 Festival in Lviv; ParadeFest
in Kharkiv; the pan-Ukrainian Worldview
Festival in Severodonetsk, and the "Bliski Neznajomi"
Festival in Poznan, Poland. It took home two awards for its final performance: Olena Basha for Best Actress and for Creative Directorial Effort. At the pan-Ukrainian HRA Festival
it was honoured as one of the Top-5 Best Experimental Plays in the country.
