See the new trailer for the production:
The White Factory marks the playwrighting debut of author Glukhovsky, who, following a recent trial in absentia, was sentenced to eight years in prison by the Russian state. Currently living in exile, he has been accused of deliberately spreading false information about Russia’s armed forces.
The play’s director, Maxim Didenko, is also an outspoken critic of the invasion of Ukraine and the production’s creative team also includes Ukrainian creative producer Ekaterina Kashynsteva.
Inspired by true events, The White Factory explores the life of Holocaust survivor Yosef Kaufman, who is haunted by the traumas of his past whilst trying to build a future for himself and his new family in 1960s Brooklyn.
The world premiere will take place at the Marylebone Theatre in London from 15 September until 4 November 2023.
