About / How to use this site
In 2011, the National Theatre premiered Collaborators, a new play by John Hodges about celebrated Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov. At the same time, Complicite began creating an adaptation of one of Bulgakov’s most famous works, The Master and Margarita.
This blog is an exploration of both creative projects and a space to ask questions about who Bulgakov was, and why he is interesting and relevant today.
To get the most out of the blog, start by looking at the most recent posts in one of the sections above, and then use the tags that appear on the right hand side to filter posts depending on what you want to know more about.
The fourth section – PARTICIPATE – is for you to use in whatever way you’d like. We’d really like to know how you’ve used the site, what you thought of the shows and whether you can add any material to our ongoing Bulgakive. The blog is being added to all the time, so sign up in the box below to keep up to date.
