Theatre Works and Melbourne Festival present a new works by Award-winning director Daniel Schlusser, M+M. In his most ambitious production to date, this is an original work inspired by the life of Mikhail Bulgakov, his sensuous, satirical masterpiece of love and madness, The Master and Margarita, and the darkly theatrical politics of contemporary Russia.
Satan has arrived downtown. People are disappearing; men are turning into flying pigs. A young woman is ready to sell her soul to save her lover. The wicked are spared, and the good are going mad. In the hands of Melbourne’s own Daniel Schlusser Ensemble, Bulgakov’s anarchic vision collides with the trial of art activists Pussy Riot, and sees religion, atheism and the politics of post-capitalism combust in a frenzy of dramatic defiance.
