The play's synopsis:
Moscow, 1938. A dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom. Dissident playwright Mikhail Bulgakov has both, despite being stalked by the secret police. Inspired by historical fact, Collaborators embarks on a surreal journey into the fevered imagination of the writer after he's offered a poisoned chalice in exchange for freedom: write a play glorifying Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday.
Congratulations and good luck to Mrs. H-B!
