WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Edward Kemp's adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's landmark satirical novel, The Master and Margarita, is a phantasmagorical ride through Stalinist Russia. The Master, a playwright trying desperately to get his script about Jesus and Pontius Pilate produced, fights with Theatre Critics and Cultural Commissars at every turn. He is driven to the edge of a despair so deep that not even his lover Margarita can reach him. Into the middle of this bleak picture steps the shabby aristocrat Professor Woland (who actually is the devil in human form), a specialist in black magic and his unwholesome entourage (including a talking cat). The entourage has to come to set Moscow on its ear with magic, violence and a party of the damned that no bureaucrat could.
