About this show

Drugs, sex and murder are at the center of this tragic farce based on a play by Mikhail Bulgakov, one of the great masters of the modern theatre. Directed by Alexandre Marine, this dark comedy revolves around the bureaucratic games a Russian widow must play in the 1920's to hold onto her large Moscow apartment. By day Zoya Peltz disguises her apartment as a sewing shop, and by night she transforms it into a brothel. The play pokes fun at the apparatchiks, drug pushers, and various other corrupt officials who populated Soviet Moscow's thriving black market. Back from a sold-out run in Moscow, Zoya provides a fascinating, highly entertaining look at the dark side of postrevolutionary Russia.
