Ahh, Russia! Home of words! Home of books and plays! Home of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekov, Brezhnev, Gogol!

Russian literature is the finest in the world. Gambling devices are also excellent! In this show, we combine Russian literature with gambling devices! Hurray! Roll a five, someone gets cholera! Land on red and communism happens! Roll a seven and Anna Karenina turns into a balalaika! Roll a one for the KGB!

Comedian Will Seaward (Will Seaward Spooky Midnight Ghost Stories, Will Seaward’s Socialist Fairytales) and actors Sullivan Brown (Every Wild Beast, From Dust) and Jonathan Ashby-Rock (The History Boys, Around the World in 80 Days) present this show which puts dice back in Dicetoyevsky and the bookie back in Russian books!
