Cast

Vodka, Fucking and Television is a dark comedy about a struggling writer, and the vices holding him back. But Kurochkin gives this plot a surprising twist: The vices become personified, and each gets a chance to justify their presence in the hero's life, or get the boot. Inspired by artistic malaise, Vodka, Fucking and Television calls to mind a fantastic combination of the Cohen Brothers' Barton Fink, with Sartre's No Exit.

Widely regarded as one of Russia’s greatest living playwrights, Maksym Kurochkin was introduced to Austin in 2011 at Breaking String Theater Co.’s inaugural New Russian Drama Festival; he would return as the spotlight artist for New Russian Drama Festival 2012, which saw the American premiere of his play, The Schooling of Bento Bonchev. Kurochkin’s plays’ imagination, immediacy, irreverence and humor have made him a sensation in Russia as well as in Texas, and Breaking String is excited to extend its relationship with Max’s work.
