City Garage will present the world premiere of Moskva
by Steven Leigh Morris.Moskva
is a comic, macabre fantasy, based on
the Russian masterpiece The Master and Margarita
by Mikhail Bulgakov
. On a hot spring afternoon, the Devil and his entourage, trailing fire and chaos in their wake, emerge from The Shadows
of the underworld and weave themselves into the absurd and brutal realities of today's Moscow. They encounter lovers, mafia king-pins, drug-dealers, hit-men, a crippled novelist, Pontius Pilate, Christ, and various bewildered apparatchiks of Putin's Russia. Moskva
is a contemporary, historical, and musical carnival, an homage to Bulgakov and to people everywhere struggling against the unjust and lunatic incursions of their governments.
