Student, The (15)

Student, The (15)


Contemporary Russia. A high school student becomes convinced that the world has been lost to evil, and begins to challenge the morals and beliefs of the adults around him.

The critical consensus

A scintillating, well told tale.

***(*)(*)Tom Williams, Little White Lies, 28/02/2017

This hypnotic adaptation of Marius von Mayenburg’s play finds the comedy in the actions committed by a devout teenager in the name of his beliefs.

****(*)Phil Hoad, The Guardian, 02/03/2017

Utterly compelling and often funny.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 03/03/2017

Far-right extremism causes havoc in a Russian school in this strident but timely tale.
