Russian Plays Paperback
Part of the Oberon Modern Collections series
" Includes the plays Master and Margarita (Satan's Ball), Vanity, Gogol and Brothers Karamazov From original translations by Faynia Williams.
Crane and Williams' sensational Master and Margarita (Satan's Ball) marked the beginning of a golden period when their company BrightonTheatre premiered a succession of ground-breaking new plays, which took festivals by storm and toured the world.
Out of the spectacular Bulgakov, came the minimalist Gogol, a chilling evocation of Gogol's whirling world, distilled into a nightmare for today.
Then Vanity, a 'glittering diamond of a play', reclaimed Pushkin's Eugene Onegin as a intimate reflection on a love mistimed and shattered by social convention. From these successes, Brighton Theatre moved onto the main Edinburgh programme with Brothers Karamazov: a leap into the dark world of epilepsy, orthodoxy and murder in the family, which won triumphant reviews and international acclaim.
