Moscow Never Sleeps

R 18+

17 Nov - 19 Nov

Moscow Never Sleeps is a contemporary multi-narrative that dives into the volatile intersections of Russia’s capital and the intimate lives of five people.

Tickets: Full $19. Concession $16. Member $15.
  • The quartet of Russians include an entrepreneur whose business empire comes under siege by powerful bureaucrats; a teenage girl mired in the misery of a broken home; a young man forced to abandon his grandmother; a beautiful singer torn apart by the pursuit of two men; and an ailing film star who gets embroiled in a bizarre kidnapping.

    Over the course of one day, their lives will change forever. These stories weave through Moscow’s manic cityscape as it celebrates its birthday with a massive fireworks display. They reveal the unrestrained energy of Europe’s biggest city, they testify to the depth and power of the Russian spirit, and they prise open the fractures between love and ambition that are universal to all our lives.
