We are currently developing our production of Maklena by the Ukrainian playwright Mykola Kulish, translated into English for the first time by Maria Montague.
Maklena tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who fixates on a fairy-tale vision of the Soviet Union. Communist propaganda, magical geese and her family's bleak reality become blurred in her imagination, and Maklena’s dream of joining the revolution takes her down a dangerous path.
Following the premiere of Maklena as an abridged version at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017, we have expanded the play into a full-length piece and toured it in the UK in July 2018. We are now excited to put it on again in 2019.
