St.Petersburg State A.A. Bryantsev Youth Theatre, Russian Federation Contractions



Staging of the famous play – Mike Bartlett's Contractions by St Petersburg A.A. Bryantsev Youth Theatre. This ink-black satire features a series of short interviews between the human resources manager of a multinational company and a young woman working in the sales division. Mike Bartlett, who was thrilled, by his own words, that Contractions was having its premiere production in Russia, said that the message he wanted to translate to the viewers is 'the importance of humanity versus faceless authority, and the necessity of frailty, emotion and above all, play.'

This show was part of our 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
