Last year the city of Salisbury became infamous for being the site of a showdown within the Russian secret service involving the new poison Novichok - a Russian word now firmly embedded in British reality. Over a year on and the theatre world has yet to respond to this significant event.
Victor Shenderovich is a well know and banned anti-Putin satirist in Russia. He has responded to this event with a funny and darkly surreal play that explores fake news, cultural identity and the fragile relationship between Russia and Britain.
A collaboration between HUNCHtheatre and Stage RC, we are excited to introduce a new author to a British audience and explore this topical and complex issue.
