9 Aug10 Sept 2005. An escapist play set in a poky flat in a small town outside post-Communist Moscow, Ladybird is a microcosm of low life in Russia today. The plays nihilistic tone is sealed by the flats nickname, Dead and Alive, derived from its position overlooking an abandoned cemetery. About to join the army in Chechnya, 19 year old Dima throws himself a farewell party in the flat he shares with his alcoholic waster father. He wants to escape his current life from this small town, and even the possibility of violent death in Chechnya is more inviting to Dima than the slow death of his current life. As a portrait of youthful desolation, Sigarev's 90-minute play is grippingly persuasive, said one review by The Guardian. By Vassily Sigarev. Directed by Tim McDonnell, with Frances Blackburn, Aoife Espinosa, Jason Gilroy, Art Kearns, Oliver McQuillan, Tara Nixon ONeill and Niall Power.
