After Mikhail Bulgakov's novel

A brilliant medical professor transplants human testicles into a stray dog and creates monstrous man who turns on his creator...

Marking 100 year anniversary of Russian Revolution, London Based Russian company Xameleon Theatre is presenting A Dog's Heart - an interactive, contemporary and original adaptation of Master and Margarita's author Mikhail Bulgakov's satiric masterpiece.

A Dog's Heart written in 1925, set in the surrealistic world, and featuring a stray dog named Sharik who takes human form as narcissistic incarnation of the New Soviet Man, was banned in Russia for over 60 years for its controversial portrayal of the social clash between the old and the new generations. The plot of this story, traditionally interpreted as an allegory of the Communist revolution, sounds surprisingly relevant in today's world, by examining the struggle between opposing social classes and their conflicts.

Directed by Konstantin Kamenski

The production is presented by Xameleon Theatre

Please note that the show is performed in Russian with English subtitles
