Dogstar Theatre Company presents Nightlands by Jack MacGregor
Wed 3rd Aug - Sun 14th Aug
Time: 20:45 ( 60 mins )
Nightlands is a play about how authoritarianism weaponises nostalgia, about Russia today, a psychological thriller located in the ex-Soviet ghost town of Pyramiden, Svalbard.
Set in 1999, at the dawn of the Putin autocracy, Pyramiden’s caretakers play out a generational and ideological conflict. Sasha (Matthew Zajac) is nostalgic for the collapsed communist past, Slava (Rebecca Wilkie) wants a better future. Their epic struggle rages like the storms of the Polar Night.
From leading Scottish company Dogstar “Don’t miss a chance to see it” The Herald on The Sky Is Safe, Summerhall 2017.
