Cut and pasted from an email from the National Theatre:

Collaborators by John Hodge, 1 December

Moscow, 1938. A dangerous place to have a sense of humour; even more so a sense of freedom. Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he’s offered a poisoned chalice: a commission to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Inspired by historical fact, Collaborators is a darkly funny new play from the screenwriter of Trainspotting. Alex Jennings and Simon Russell Beale play Bulgakov and Stalin respectively.

I got my ticket for this NT Live in eons ago and I will be seeing it at my usual NT Live venue - the Brixton Ritzy.

Have been too busy chasing around the country with my boy (Birmingham last week, Sheffield this week, Leeds next week... ) to have the energy for this after all. However this frenzy of interviews now heralds a quieter time for me from the new year onwards when he will be busy ensuring that he gets the necessary grades and I will most definitely be taking some time out for myself to see some theatre! :-)

There are more chances to see Collaborators.

Collaborators is coming to the Olivier in Spring. There will be performances on 30 April, 1, 2, 3, 10, 11, 12, and 13 May, with further performances for May and June being announced in February.
