From the screenwriter who brilliantly turned Irvine Welsh's collection of heroin-laced short stories into the cult-sensational Ewan McGregor-laced film Trainspotting, comes a new play about the Soviet Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov. In John Hodge's black comedic drama set in 1930s Moscow, Bulgakov is commissioned to write a play about Stalin for his 60th birthday—though the playwright's playful sense of humor could mean a deadly payment. Praised by theater critics, Collaborators follows the maddening journey into the mind of Bulgakov as he cerebrally faces off with the threatening and powerful subject of his work. Don't miss the Barclay's performance this one night only.
