Original Playwright - Torsten Buchsteiner


A story about the extremes we will go to for the people we care most about. An extraordinary and moving play about the 2002 Moscow theatre siege. It's 23 October 2002: Olga and her daughter are settling into their seats at the Dubrovka Theatre in Moscow. They're about to watch Nordost - a family musical, a song-and-dance spectacular about the glories of Russian soldiers. Across town, Zura, a young Chechan widow, sits in a van. Around her are other young widows who have loved and lost before their twentieth birthday. Outside a hospital, Tamara, a doctor, is taking a break from ambulance duty when a call comes over the radio: Chechan militants have laid siege to the Dubrovka Theatre. This extraordinary, multi award-winning play presents the experiences of three women willing to sacrifice their lives for the people they love. In this UK premiere three outstanding actresses combine with a silent chorus' of young people from Stage '65, the Playhouse's Youth Theatre. This is a play about hate, but it is also a play about love.
