A searing multimedia performance based on the last words of women accused of political crimes in Russian courts, The Last Word is performed by acclaimed actor Alisa Khazanova (The Woman in Black), and directed by award-winning director Maxim Didenko (The White Factory).

These powerful, outspoken messages from the courtroom form one of the last surviving bastions of free speech imaginable in contemporary Russia. The performance brings together the last words of defendants such as Maria Alyokhina & Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of "Pussy Riot", Alla Gutnikova, Sasha Skochilenko, Zarifa Sautievaand others to shine a light on their courage and to paint a timely and devastating picture of Russia’s current regime.

The Last Word reunites the creative team from last year's five-star, Offie Award-winning production ofThe White Factory at the Marylebone Theatre, many of whom are acclaimed artists and leading cultural figures from Russia who fled the country after Putin's full-scale attack on Ukraine.
