La MaMa and The Public Theater have announced a return engagement by the Belarus Free Theatre, which will present three works in repertory at La MaMa, April 13-May 15, with an official press opening on April 18.

Adapted and directed by Vladimir Shcherban, Being Harold Pinter (a hit at this year's Under the Radar Festival) incorporates transcripts from Belarusian political prisoners with excerpts from Harold Pinter's lifetime of writings.

Directed by Shcherban and conceived by Shcherban, Natalia Koliada, and Nikolai Khalezin, Zone of Silence consists of three independent chapters reflecting on various taboos which are not open for wide discussion in Belarusian society.

Written and directed by Khalezin, Discover Love, making its New York premiere, is based on real facts from the life of Irina Krasovskaya, whose husband was kidnapped and murdered for lending assistance to the democratic body of Belarus.
