The Master and Margarita

The Master and Margarita was playing at the ADC Theatre last week. I met up with the cast hours before their final show to take some photos of their play. On camdram you can read:

“What would the good do if evil did not exist? And what would the earth look like if shadows disappeared from it?” The Devil arrives in Stalinist Moscow. Pontius Pilate argues with Christ over the nature of human worth. And a woman goes to hell and back to save her lover.
This adaptation of Bulgakov’s violent, poetic and sprawling masterpiece stays true to the heart of the original: part diabolical satire, exposing the hypocrisy, greed and corruption of Moscow’s citizens, and part heart-rending love story, engaging with our most basic human instincts.

Here are the photos:
