Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing, Clever

See it if you want to see a well-written well-acted story about a person trying to recover his birthright.

Don't see it if you would prefer a musical or sharp socioeconomic satire about problems of today. Read more

Dmitry was indeed a bold choice for this new theatre, but in the main it is one that has paid off. This is a powerfully relevant story that has been spectacularly told.

"It's always a pleasure to welcome a new theatre to the fold...But, topical as it may be, this opening production fails to deliver a suitably celebratory inauguration."

"The production is better taken on its own, knotty terms, as a tale of toxic nationalism."

"There is certainly something Shakespearean in the panoramic shuttle between factions, and the way scenes of public assertion are slashed by moments of intense private doubt, shared with the audience alone."
