Natasha’s Dream

New Repertory Theatre presents
Arlekin Players: Natasha’s Dream
February 14, 20, 21 at 7:30pm
Black Box Theater

 

by Yaroslava Pulinovich
translated by John Freedman
directed by Igor Golyak
featuring Darya Denisova

 

Tuesday, February 14 at 7:30pm
Monday, February 20 at 7:30pm
Tuesday, February 21 at 7:30pm

 

In Natasha’s Dream, a girl tells the story of her life in a small-town orphanage, and her desire to be free; to fly away and break the vicious circle of life. From the inside of a courtroom, she makes twists and turns through her unique appeal to audiences, letting them into her world where she dreams about love, family, acceptance, adjusting, and her future.

 

Natasha’s Dream recently appeared at several prestigious festivals including off-Broadway at the United Solo Theatre Festival at the Theatre Row, Solo International Theatre Festival in Moscow, and High Fest International Performing Arts Festival in Yerevan, Armenia.

 

Arlekin Players’s production has been translated into English by John Freedman, who calls it “one of the most resonant texts to have emerged in Russia over the last two or three years,” and “an incisive look at the complex life of one teenage girl who runs up against insensitive teachers, shifty classmates, a journalist who unwittingly wins her heart, and a couple of experiences that most likely will scar her life forever.”
