One Hour Eighteen Minutes – a play about Sergei Magnitsky at the Sputnik Theatre

Human Rights in Russia

Sputnik Theatre
16th of November 2012 – a significant date…

Dear friends,

Russia is rarely out of the news these days with the ongoing protests and the sentencing of Pussy Riot. But one story which is just as intriguing and Kafka-esque is the life and death of Sergei Magnitsky.

The 16th of November 2012 will be the third anniversary of Sergei Magnitsky’s death in police custody.

This year, Elena Gremina – one of Russia’s most important political playwrights, recently commissioned by the Tricycle Theatre as part of ‘The Bomb’ – has updated her play, One Hour Eighteen Minutes, to include the very latest developments of this story about Sergei Magnitsky, the whistleblower against government corruption. Gremina’s play is based on original, first-hand interviews.

The updated version of the play is being launched at Teatr.doc in Moscow at exactly the same time as Sputnik’s London production.

We’re delighted to welcome such a strong cast and creative team to Sputnik’s forthcoming show. You can read more about them below… We hope to see you there!

& Margarita Osepyan, Sputnik coproducer
