DESCRIPTION

Off the Ground Theatre present a modern tale of corruption, lies and stupidity. Set in Russia, it
might prove more familiar than you think...

A small Russian town is trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of drunk, frequently ridiculous
and constantly inept politicians who have fought and cheated their way to the top. They push
propaganda, they intimidate, they threaten and control the media - all to maintain their ill-gotten
positions of power.

When Ilya, a shell-shocked soldier who can no longer drink, returns home from the frontlines in
Chechnya, he is hailed as a hero. Caught in the eye of a political tornado, he is pushed and
pulled as the leaders of his hometown manipulate him to further their own agendas.

First performed by the RSC in 2009, this hilarious, populist play is more relevant in our current
political climate than ever before. Inspired by Gogolian comedy, it cuts to the core of small-town
bureaucracy, with more than toxic echoes of larger national problems.
