One Hour Eighteen Minutes is a documentary play which pieces together the final hours of Sergei Magnitsky, a whistleblowing lawyer who sued the Russian government for the largest known case of tax fraud in Russian history. Out of retaliation, the police arrested Magnitsky and threw him into jail. Over the course of eleven months, he was held without charge. One Hour Eighteen Minutes weaves together a dramatic tale which gives a fascinating insight into the dark heart of modern day Russia.
