Following its sold-out run earlier this year, Simon McBurney’s award-winning company Complicite returns to the Barbican theatre with The Master And Margarita.

A woman goes to hell and back to save her lover, Pontius Pilate argues with Christ about the nature of human worth, and the Devil pays a visit to Stalinist Moscow, exposing the hypocrisy, greed and corruption of its citizens.

Moving between the fervently atheistic Moscow of the 1930s and Jerusalem during the last days of Jesus’ life, Mikhail Bulgakov’s violent, poetic maelstrom of a novel is brought to life through performance, video, puppetry and music in McBurney’s breathtaking adaptation.

About Barbican Theatre

Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email ticketing@officiallondontheatre.com to find out more about your chosen show.
