More About the Show
In the chill of each Stalinist midnight, the paranoid ramblings of the dictator arrive on the desk of his celebrated poet Rodnoi Ivanovich Stetsenko to be woven into beautifully state-sanctioned truth by dawn. Tonight, however, his clattering typewriter keys are silent. They swerve in policy is so dizzying that for the first time Rodoni is conflicted. A mysterious stranger arrives with the early morning light to nudge him towards tomorrow’s truth and a bloody fresh new dawn.
