  • 1996 Playwrights Lab


Petrushka, a soldier, has fought a long hard war. On his return home, he is aware of a man by his side, who turns out to be Death himself. Petrushka persuades Death to give him some extra time to build a family and lead a normal life. The play examines the notion of evil through the form of a Russian folk tale. This new play for community audiences will tour Wales and England during the fall of 1996


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
