SUMMARY

“Cockroaches” is an original translation and production of Bulgakov’s play “Flight”; his first draft, written before it was censored by the Soviet theatres and Stalin’s censorship committee; translated by Anastasiya Sosis for London audiences.

Set in a war-torn Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, this is a story of five refugees, fleeing the Soviet regime in hope of finding a better life only to become aliens in an indifferent country. It is a bittersweet tragedy introducing us to events long gone that are as relevant today as they were 100 years ago.

“Cockroaches” explores the modern day issue of the refugee crisis, showing how people are reduced to the very basic forms of themselves by the disdain of their homeland and the indifference of the rest of the world, truly becoming cockroaches.
