Nightlands by Jack MacGregor


Nightlands is a play about how authoritarianism weaponises nostalgia, about Russia today. A psychological thriller set in the ex-Soviet ghost town of Pyramiden, Svalbard. Set in 1999 at the dawn of the Putin autocracy, Pyramiden's caretakers play out a generational and ideological conflict. Sasha (Matthew Zajac) is nostalgic for the collapsed communist past while Slava (Rebecca Wilkie) wants a better future. Their epic struggle rages like the storms of the polar night. From leading Scottish company Dogstar. 'Don't miss a chance to see it' (Herald on The Sky Is Safe, 2017).
