Molodyi Teatr London is a Ukrainian-British theatre group dedicated to bringing migrantsvoices to the stage. We started in 2010 with Ukrainian-language adaptations of works by famous Ukrainian writers (Nikolai Gogol/Mykola Hohol’, Taras Shevchenko, contemporary Ukrainian poets), before moving on to documentary pieces on subjects like the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-33 and the 2013-14 Maidan protests. In 2014, we started work on our first full-length English-language show, Bloody East Europeans, a cabaret-style musical satire on British attitudes to Eastern Europeans. It was one of To Do List’s 40 unmissable shows of the 2015 Fringe, named one of Edinburgh 49’s shows to see, and was long-listed for Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award. Molodyi Teatr London’s latest show, Penetrating Europe, or Migrants Have Talent has been called ‘fresh, thoughtful and a hell of a lot of fun’ by Central and Eastern European London Review
