The theatre company behind the Liverpool Shakespeare Festival is turning its hand to something completely different, with an adaptation of a modern classic Russian novel.
Mikhail Bulgarov’s satire Master and Margarita is a multi-layered story combining -it sez ‘ere – “the love affair of the century, Satan’s visit to Moscow, the final days of Christ and a fantastical cast of supernatural and historical figures”. Crikey.
The author’s wild imagination is brought to life by in this rare co-production between the Unity and Lodestar using video, puppetry, magic, animation and performance to create an extraordinary show. Check out Lodestar’s rather exciting and swish website, that will tell you more about the show (which from the look of things has replaced the Shakespeare Festival this year).
It’s an epic for the venue in more ways than one, with a comparatively long run from October 1 to 12.
