The Master and margarita tour
Our award-winning Master and Margarita transfer to St Cuthbert's at the Edinburgh Fringe was a major success, garnering a host of four and five star reviews.
Master and Margarita is a fascinating tale set in Stalinist Russia, following the relationship between an impoverished writer (the Master), his impetuous muse (Margarita) and the events that are set into motion when he decides to write a book about the crucifixion of Jesus from the perspective of Pontius Pilate. This is a novel which exists on thousands of different levels; of shifting, deceiving and transforming like the four enigmatic devils who bound between its pages. Our production wanted to acknowledged the pirouetting, scattershot nature of the original novel, creating a piece of theatre which can react to the ambition of its audience, producing a different telling of this fantastical tale every single night.
Handheld lights, live sound effects, puppets and physical theatre were part of our interpretation of the fantastical, magical piece. We've had such a great reaction to the show and are hugely proud of our work; thank you to everyone who came and saw it, we absolutely loved working with you.
