Moscow, 1938: a dangerous place to have a sense of humour. But when celebrated satirist and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov is commissioned to write a play for Stalin's birthday it becomes even more so. And after the dictator begins to take a personal interest, Bulgakov finds his principles and relationships under threat. An Olivier award-winning black comedy-drama from the screenwriter behind Trainspotting and Shallow Grave.
