  • Visitor Information

Following its successful season back in 2012, Simon McBurney once again brings his award-winning theatre company Complicite to the Barbican with a new adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's classic Soviet satire. In the novel The Master and Margarita there are two plot lines, one follows the last few days in the life of Jesus Christ, the other the chaos of Moscow, satirising the Soviet system and bureaucracy. While Pontius Pilate argues with Jesus about the nature of human worth, Satan comes to save the world. Happy-Go-Lucky actress Sinead Matthews, who is no stranger to the stage, takes on the role of Margarita, opposite Paul Rhys.
