Additional Info

This bitingly funny adaptation of Bulgakov's modern Russian classic novel of 1936 was premièred at the Royal National's Cottesloe Theatre in 1991. Set between 1924 and 1925 it is an hilarious send-up of Stanislavsky's famous 'Method' and the acting profession in general and was based on fact - the mutilation of Bulgakov's play Molière, for which Bulgakov blamed Stanislavsky.
