Bogaev's play offers a haunting image of desolation, one that almost seems
a
metaphor for artistic creation: what else does a writer do but give life
to
absent figures through imaginary conversations? As director and
translator, Noah
Birksted-Breen makes a profoundly Russian play accessible to a western
audience.
Michael Billington, The Guardian

Noah Birksted-Breen, the translator and director, retains this very
Russian
spirit while at the same time rendering the piece accessible to a British
audience with his fresh, unstilted translation
