"The Master and Margarita"
In the theatrical adaptation of the cult masterpiece by Russian writer by Mikhail Bulgakov, the theatre department will perform "Master and Margarita." The performance includes a new adaptation specifically for Georgia Southern by Stacia Saint Owens and combines two distinct yet interwoven parts—one set in ancient Jerusalem, one in contemporary Moscow. The novel veers from moods of wild theatricality with violent storms, vampire attacks, and a Satanic ball; to such somber scenes as the meeting of Pilate and Yeshua, and the murder of Judas in the moonlit garden of Gethsemane; to the substance less, circus-like reality of Moscow.
The theatre program at Georgia Southern is the longest continuous performance troupe in Georgia.
