Cinzano and Smirnova's Birthday are two linked plays depicting the grim reality of domestic life in Soviet Russia. And despite the immense political and social upheaveals of the past twenty years they remain as resonant and relevant as ever. In Cinzano, three young men drink themselves into a stupor to escape their drab lives and family responsibilities. In the companion piece, Smirnova's Birthday, the men's girlfriends meet up at a birthday celebration. Petrushevskaya's work is rooted in the domestic detail of everyday life in Soviet Russia. Her writing has been described as 'funny, unpredictable and sad; and immediately buttonholes you with warmth and intimacy' Financial Times.
