Plasticine (NHB Modern Plays) by Vassily Sigarev

An extraordinary and disturbing play about post-Communist Russia by a young Siberian-born writer.

Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright
Anti-Booker Prize, Moscow

In a faceless city in the depths of present-day Russia a young boy dies. Women in the street are drunk, fight and demand sex. Maksim, a schoolboy, makes his way through this urban hell. His only retreat is into a private world moulded by himself, out of which springs a final act of reckless courage.

'Watching this impressive and disturbing howl of a play by the young Russian writer, Vassily Sigarev, is like taking a walk through a rough, druggy London scene after closing time... it has flashes of almost comic grotesquery, vividly communicates an alarming sense of contemporary urban Russia on the verge of anarchy and breakdown' - Evening Standard

'This extraordinary play lasts only 75 minutes, but watching Dominic Cooke's brilliant production you feel you have been to hell and back. Plasticine offers a nightmarish trip to the lower depths of contemporary Russia, and the sheer power of the staging leaves you reeling' - Daily Telegraph
