Dying for It
Comedy/Drama

Freely adapted from Nikolai Erdman's The Suicide—a 1928 satire that was banned by Stalin before it ever took the stage—Dying for It by Moira Buffiini is a modernized take on the same dark buffoonery and fallacies of post-revolution life. In this tragedy-turned-slapstick, Semyon is a young unemployed man who has an obsessive itch to commit suicide. A ragtag team of early Soviet Russian society consisting of a dissatisfied intellectual, a boisterous romantic, a questionable priest, a controversial writer, and a proletarian postman all team up to gain a martyred profit off of Semyon offing himself.
