SUMMARY

It’s October 23, 2002 and Olga and her daughter are settling into their seats at the Dubrovka Theatre in Moscow. They’re about to watch ‘Nordost’ – a family musical, a song-and-dance spectacular about the glories of Russian soldiers. Across town, Zura, a young Chechen widow sits in a van. Around her, other young widows, who have loved and lost before their 20th birthday. Outside a hospital, Tamara, a doctor, receives a radio call: Chechen militants have laid siege to the Dubrovka Theatre. This extraordinary, multi award-winning play presents three women willing to sacrifice their lives for the people they love. In this UK premiere, three outstanding British actresses take the stage with a ‘silent chorus’ of young people from St Edward’s School.
