You can’t even read the label on a Russian jam jar but you want to tell me what’s wrong with the whole of my society?

A state-run English-language TV station in Moscow. On Richard Hunt’s first day as acting producer, Milosevic dies. A simple story of an evil man dying unmourned may not be so simple after all.

Moscow Live is Serge Cartwright’s first play, based on his experiences in a Moscow newsroom. A very funny but deadly serious look at how truth and news are rarely the same thing, and how individual motives interfere with both. It is a thrilling, thought-provoking and razor-sharp debut.

Moscow Live was performed at HighTide Festival 2010.
