20 Description The picture represents a view of a vilage street. Two-storey open-worked construction is situated around a semicircular square. It is built of high pillars and large shingle roofs. Low wattle-fences are connecting the pillars on different levels. In the center there is a large roof resembling a cupola.The left part is occupied with windmill sail-arms. To the right there is a large scarecrow with brooms instead of arms. A suspended ladder is leading to the second floor of the "building" from the left. In the center one can also see the banisters of a stair which leads from the rised forepart of the stage to the lower distant part. A backdrop is painted with green, the floor with violet and the roofs with grey and blue colours.

36 Summary and Remarks
The play "The Jacquerie" by P.Merime was put on stage in the Jewish Mobile theatre of Biellorussian SSR by L.Litvinov. "The Jacquerie" is a chronicle of an insurrection of the French peasantry which broke out in the Ile de France and about Beauvais in 1358. ##It was noted by critics that the Akselrod's stage design showing a French village of the Middle ages was strongly resembling a view of a jewish shtetl of the beginning of the 20th century. The stage design for "The Jacqerie" is the first theatre work of M.Akselrod. The work is painted on the back side of the piece of A.Tyshler's poster "Antisemitism - is our class enemy".
