Troika Collective presents Nordost
Venue: Havana Theatre
Half-price tickets: $12.75
Produced and performed by an all-female cast and crew, Nordost tells the harrowing story of the 57-hour hostage crisis in Moscow's Dubrovka Theatre and its shocking culmination from the perspective of three very different women: Olga (Elizabeth Kirkland), a Russian mother, has saved for months to bring her husband and young daughter to the theatre to see the first original Russian musical. Zura (Chelsea MacDonald), a young Chechen widow, travels to Moscow as a suicide bomber, trained to avenge her country and her slain husband. Tamara (Randi Edmundson) is a paramedic and single mother called to the scene of the crisis, with ties to the Chechen conflict of her own. As lives and families are forever altered, these three women find new sources of strength, resistance, and empathy. Post Show Talk Back
