Moscow, 1996. Boris Yeltsin seeks his second Presidential term running against hugely popular head of Russian Communist Party. The country is again on the brink of major political and economical upheaval. As political tension rises and the corruption of Boris Yeltsin's presidency reaches its peak, four American expats search Moscow for love, fame, and an alternative to US greed. Each descends into the double-dealing and vice of the New Russian Democracy, learning first hand of their own country's role in the fraud and bribery.
After a successful run off-Broadway last year, Expats is receiving its New England premiere, performed by a cast of "expats" -- students of the A.R.T/ Moscow Art Theatre Institute for Advanced Theatre Training whose program included their living and studying in Moscow last spring.
