A new RSC commission by Natal’ia Vorozhbit.
Ukraine 1929. As Stalin launches the first of his Five Year Plans, a close-knit rural community stands unwittingly in the path of his drive to create a thriving socialist Soviet Union. The outcome is catastrophic.
What begins for the people of the village as an amusingly alien political concept rapidly becomes an unstoppable force for change. Robbed first of their land, then their religion and independence, the whole country soon becomes engulfed by a tragedy that will scar a nation for generations.
This RSC commission by Ukrainian playwright Natal’ia Vorozhbit is the second new play in the RSC’s strand of work examining the past, present and future of Russian playwriting. The Grain Store is an urgent and epic account of one of the untold stories of the 20th century.
