Dying For It
By Moira Buffini
A Free Adaptation of The Suicide by Nikolai Erdman
Directed by Scott Zigler
March 17-19, 2016
In Dying for It, Moira Buffini’s adaptation of Nikolai Erdman’s biting Soviet farce, a man contemplating suicide attracts a series of hangers-on who want to profit from his death. Banned by Stalin, this satire about death affirms the things worth living for in desperate times. Katherine plays the aged, drunken Father Yelpidy of the era's cast aside Russian Orthodox Church. She will be fully bearded.
