The Master and Margarita
£ 10 - 22
Internationally renowned theatre company Complicite return to Plymouth to open their new production of The Master and Margarita this autumn. For three exclusive performances, Plymouth audiences can again be the first to experience a new work from one of the world’s greatest theatre companies. This follows the Olivier Award winning A Disappearing Number which also opened in Plymouth in 2007.
A retelling of The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov’s fantastical tale of Satan’s reckoning with 1930s Russia The Master and Margarita is both a satirical romp and a daring analysis of good and evil, innocence and guilt. Although written in the 30s, the story is a parable for our times – for all times.
Simon McBurney recently directed the premiere of the opera A Dog’s Heart based on Bulgakov’s novella The Heart of a Dog which was nominated for a Sky Arts Award and an Olivier Award.
Complicite’s other recent work includes Shun-kin based on the writings of Junichiro Tanizaki and A Disappearing Number which, in its last ever performance in 2010, was broadcast live from the Theatre Royal stage to cinemas throughout the world.
