The Natasha Plays (I Won and Natasha’s Dream) by Yaroslava Pulinovich, translated by John Freedman, were originally presented at the Towson University Department of Theatre Arts New Russian Drama season, developed in collaboration with the Center for International Development, Philip Arnoult, Director. The productions toured to the Charlestown Working Theatre in Massachusetts, Mabou Mines ToRoNaDa Space in New York City, the Varna Summer Festival in Bulgaria and Istropolitana Projekt in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The plays featured Sarah Lloyd (I Won) and Julia M. Smith (Natasha’s Dream).
“The unleashed, visceral teenage angst of these monologues is the driving force of this work. For a moment, thanks to Pulinovich, we get the unfettered voice of a younger generation.”
