A surreal black comedy by Mikhail Durnenkov
You think your life is normal, but things are not always what they seem…
In twelve short modern fables, Durnenkov explores the fears and strangeness of our daily lives – sexual gamesmanship; what to do with our ageing parents; those lying politicians; tension at the airports; those lying journalists; finding ‘the one’.
Things happen, but no one can see the connections in the war has not yet started – darkly humorous, weird, unsettling and even ghastly on occasion, this surreal black comedy sees everyday people fighting everyday wars.
Mikhail Durnenkov is a major stage, screen and television talent based in Moscow. His play, The Drunks, written with his brother, was produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
