10th to 17th March 2018

A lethal game of cat and mouse inspired by historical fact. As blisteringly funny as it is deeply chilling. Moscow 1938 and the playwright  Mikhail Bulgakov who is living amongst dissidents and stalked by the secret police is offered a poisoned chalice – a commission to write a play about Stalin ‘Young Joseph’ to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. As Bulgakov gets off to a slow start Stalin relishes the idea of writing his own personal story with himself as the star but if he is writing a play who is running the country?  An epic piece of theatre, darkly comedic and shockingly dramatic.
