COLLABORATORS
Moscow, 1938: A dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom. Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he’s commissioned to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his 60th birthday.

TRAVELING LIGHT

How had a 22–year–old layabout made a discovery that eluded every other cinematic pioneer for years to come? Nicholas Wright’s new play is a funny, fascinating tribute to the Eastern European immigrants who became major players in Hollywood’s golden age.

Moscow, 1938: A dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom.
 
Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he’s offered a poisoned chalice: a commission to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Inspired by historical fact, Collaborators embarks on a surreal journey into the fevered imagination of the writer as he loses himself in a macabre and disturbingly funny relationship with the omnipotent subject of his drama. 
 
"Killing my enemies is easy. The challenge is to change the way they think, to control their minds. And I think I controlled yours pretty well. In years to come, I’ll be able to say: Bulgakov? Yeah, we even trained him. He gave up. He saw the light. We broke him, we can break anybody. It’s man versus monster, Mikhail. And the monster always wins."
 
John Hodge’s blistering new play depicts a lethal game of cat and mouse through which the appalling compromises and humiliations inflicted on any artist by those with power are held up to scrutiny. Alex Jennings plays Bulgakov and Simon Russell Beale, Stalin.

'Traveling Light' is next at 7 p.m. March 6

'Traveling Light' is next up in the National Theatre Live in HD season on March 6, 2012.Nicholas Wright’s new play is a funny and fascinating tribute to the Eastern European immigrants who became major players in Hollywood’s golden age.

In a remote village in Eastern Europe, around 1900, the young Motl Mendl is entranced by the flickering silent images on his father’s cinema-tograph. Bankrolled by Jacob, the ebullient local timber merchant, and inspired by Anna, the girl sent to help him make moving pictures of their village, he stumbles on a revolutionary way of story-telling. Forty years on, Motl – now a famed American film director – looks back on his early life and confronts the cost of fulfilling his dreams.

Showtime is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Mar. 6 at the Newport Performing Arts Center. "Traveling Light" is hosted by Gary Lehman.
