Night Train Theatre Company presents the English-language premiere of Maklena, a poetic tragicomedy about a 13-year-old who gets lost in a fairytale vision of the Soviet Union. This production is a fresh interpretation of the 1933 Ukrainian play, which incorporates puppetry and an original score.

There will also be a post-show talk after this performance lasting no more than an hour.
