THE MASTER AND MARGARITA is written by Mikhail Bulgakov

Adapted for Georgia Southern by Gideon Lester & Janos Szasz

Directed by Nicholas Newell

The devil visits Stalin’s Soviet Russia and is pleased to find that nobody believes in him. He and his demons wreak havoc on Moscow with comic mischief. . . meanwhile, a censored writer has been driven mad by his play about Jesus and Pontius Pilate and the woman who loves him will do anything to save him. The Master and Margarita was banned by Soviet authorities until decades after Bulgakov’s death in 1939. Come and see the satire that outlived and outlaughed the Soviet Union. It is a testament to the power of the written word over tyranny.


 THE MASTER AND MARGARITA will run from April 17- April 24, 2019, at the Center for Arts and Theatre Black Box Office.

Tickets can be purchased here:

Tickets prices are $6 students, $12 general admission, faculty, and staff.
