              During the German bombardment of Leningrad, earlier and now St. Petersburg, the great Russian poet Anna Akhmatova, struck on the head by a falling brick, stumbles into a basement for shelter and finds herself unexpectedly back at the long abandoned site of the Stray Dog CafE, whe...re in the second decade of the twentieth century the most famous Russian poets, artists, actors, and dancers gathered to drink, sing, argue, and make love, and gradually the Stray Dog comes to life again, when Mayakovsky, Stanislavsky, Meyerhold, Mandelstam, the ballerina Karsavina, the puppet loving and famously promiscuous Olga Sudeikina, the poet Blok and his beautiful actress wife Lyubov, the critic Brik, who became an informer for the secret police, and many others appear. In this funny, vibrant, epic tapestry, the world of pre-Revolutionary Russia comes alive again, with all its hope, and then the nightmare that followed, in which most of these amazingly talented and compelling people were one by one devoured by Stalin's Skeleton Clowns. Eerie, surreal, moving, funny, erotic, with occasional song and dance, a tribute to these remarkable ghosts. Part of Nigro's ongoing cycle of plays tracing the history of Russia in the 19th and 20th centuries that includes Pushkin, Gogol, An Angler In The Lake Of Darkness, Emotion Memory, Rasputin, A Russian Play, Marina, Mandelstam, and others.

              Note: Wonderland Wives is intended for mature audiences with very immature tastes. Cinderella's Prince Charming is serving ten years in the pen, Belle's house is overrun with little monsters, Alice has been hitting the caterpillar's pipe a little too hard lately, and Snow White's... husband has shacked up with the three little pigs. Now she's keeping up appearances as the fairest in the land with the help of a little girdle and a lot of hair dye, and trying to keep Belle from draining the royal booze reserves and Cindy from inhaling the banquet table. When Briar Rose comes home from rehab with the face of a beauty, and Charming returns from prison with the libido of a beast, the desperate housewives of the magical kingdom are forced to grapple with princely infidelity, poison apples, and Cindy's appetite for creamy poofs and brutal revenge. This fractured fairy tale brings an arched brow and an eye for dark, sexy hilarity to the Ever After that keeps going long after the Happily fades away.

              In this moving and powerful ensemble piece, a police detective investigates the mysterious death of a young Mexican actress in a bathtub. She has been making a film about a girl who dies in a bathtub, directed by a beautiful and charismatic but troubled Russian woman who seems to... have cast a spell on the others involved: a cynical, womanizing British screenwriter who wants desperately to sleep with her, a frustrated Irish actress, and a sardonic Italian assistant director. Was it an accident, suicide, or murder? As the detective gets pulled deeper and deeper into the complex and passionate world of these people, he finds himself becoming obsessed both with the dead girl in the tub and the Russian director who might be her killer. The play moves back and forth in time and space as the detective begins putting the pieces of the puzzle together. But what is reality, and what is just a movie? The deeper in he goes, the more haunting the puzzle. Is he in a movie, too? Theatre, film noir, and dream combine to pull us into the maelstrom with him.

Set within the context of a contemporary battlefie...ld tour and moving between the present day, the 1950s and WWI, the play transports an audience into the frontline trenches and the intimate fears, hopes and loves of the young soldiers risked and gave their lives in their attempt to take the wood. The finest commemoration of the First World War centenary I've seen to-date, this deserves a much longer life.
