The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls

The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls

February 3 to February 26, 2012 | On the Hertz Stage
World Premiere Kendeda Winner
Part of the Hertz Series

The eighth winner of our nationally recognized Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition is set amongst the swirling domes of the church in Red Square. Moscow seems like a fairytale to twenty year old Annie, an American in search of her roots. But when the lines between Russian fairytales and Annie’s reality start to blur - and then vanish – things get seriously dicey.

Besides winning the Kendeda Competition, Meg Miroshnik and her play are also finalists for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, a prestigious international competition recognizing women that have written outstanding English-language works of theatre.
