The Death of Stalin

1 May 7:30pm

2017 (UK)

In early-1953 Moscow, under the Great Terror’s heavy cloak of state paranoia, the ever-watchful Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin, collapses unexpectedly of a brain hemorrhage. Inevitably, when his body is discovered the following morning, a frenetic surge of raw panic spreads like a virus among the senior members of the Council of Ministers as they scramble to maintain order, weed out the competition, and, ultimately, take power.

This is a ‘black, black’ comedy brought to you by the writer of ‘In the Loop’ and ‘VEEP’ and is a lot of fun – think of it a bit like a leadership spill in Canberra but funnier and where the proponents sort of kill each other!

Rating: MA 15+ (Strong Coarse Language)
