An extraordinary and disturbing play about post-Communist Russia by a young Siberian-born writer.

Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright
Anti-Booker Prize, Moscow

In a faceless city in the depths of present-day Russia a young boy dies. Women in the street are drunk, fight and demand sex. Maksim, a schoolboy, makes his way through this urban hell. His only retreat is into a private world moulded by himself, out of which springs a final act of reckless courage.
