The British premiere of “One Hour Eighteen Minutes” by Elena Gremina will take place on on Wednesday the 16th of November, performed by Sputnik Theatre.

“One Hour Eighteen Minutes” is a play which took Moscow by storm last year last year - it weaves together the story of the largest case of government fraud in history through real testimony. The play is an intimate look at what happened to the lawyer, Sergei Magtnitsky, who tried to sue the government for its blantant fraud. This is a detailed, dark but humane look at the medieval side of modern day Russia.

Elena Gremina is one of Russia’s most important playwrights. As well as being a playwright, GREMINA co-founded Teatr.doc in Moscow, which has been instrumental in fostering political playwriting in Russia.
