Bitingly funny and wickedly irreverent, The Death of Stalin depicts the frantic power struggle that ensued after the death of tyrannicaldictator Joseph Stalin. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov, the wily Nikita Khrushchev, and the sadistic secretpolice chief Lavrentiy Beria. But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

“There is one thing that power can't stand, and that is to be mocked: The social importance of this topical romp should not beunderestimated.” ~ Globe and Mail
