MAKLENA in Ukraine

Help us bring our first-ever English translation of MAKLENA to Ukraine for a festival this June!

This June, Night Train will tour its English-language-premiere production of MAKLENA
to an international theatre festival in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

Your support will make our participation in the festival possible, and enable us to take our production of this classic Ukrainian play to the city where it premiered in 1933. We will also have a chance to participate in skill exchange workshops with Ukrainian theatre companies, lead masterclasses for local drama students, and bring our show to Kyiv following the festival.

Our hopes are about to become reality: this can’t be done without your support!



 Follow the link to our crowdfunding page to find out how this money will be spent.
