The Master and Margarita is a brilliantly conceived fairy tale, a magical realist text with strong satirical impulses, interpolated with a ‘novel within a novel’ that takes the form of a dialogue between Pontius Pilate and Jesus Christ. Wholly situating The Master and Margarita in the here and now, playing off quotidian behaviours as a way of framing the fantastical elements of the novel, grounding the work in the physical disciplines of the performers but not shying away from the supernatural and magical motifs of the work, investigating the themes of devotion, evil and genius, this Master and Margarita will be a powerful and exciting theatrical event.
