Performed live by Darya Denisova (2020 Elliot Norton Award-winner for Outstanding Actress), State vs. Natasha Banina unfolds as a Russian teenager tells the story of her life in a small-town orphanage, and how her desire to be free led to a crime of passion. From the inside of a "Zoom court room," she makes unique appeals to you, the jury, letting you into her world where she dreams of love, family, and her future.
Is Natasha guilty? You decide.
WARNING! THIS IS A LIVE INTERACTIVE ART EXPERIENCE
Based on Natasha's Dream by the Russian playwright Yaroslava Pulinovich, this New York Times Critic's Pick is a brilliant example of how live theatre can break boundaries and shock viewers even when experienced at home on a laptop.
