To See Salisbury by Victor Shenderovich
Post-show Q&A with Director Vladimir Shcherban, Writer Victor Shenderovich and Cast on Thu 27 Jun, Sat 29 Jun both 2.15pm & 9.15pm performances.
Captioned performance Friday 5 July at 9.15pm
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 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 an English audience and explore this topical and complex issue.
