An English language adaptation of an award winning Russian play by Yekaterina Vasilieva directed by Vyacheslav ‘Sava’ Chebotar and produced by the Meyerhold Theatre Center. A subtle but searing indictment of class and discrimination in contemporary Russia told from the vantage point of a provincial schoolgirl. A play in turn both comic and tragic that reveals a dark vein of Slavic humor.
