Background


A Little Hero was written by Valeriy Pecheykin, a talented young, gay Russian playwright, in January 2014 and published in Russian in the alternative literary magazine, Mitin Journal.


Because of a 2013 law banning distribution of propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors, the magazine must be sold in a black plastic cover with a note announcing that it contains information unsuitable for persons under 18.


For the same reason, the play stands no chance of being staged in Russia in the foreseeable future.


Synopsis


The WORLD PREMIERE of Valeriy Pecheykin's A Little Hero.


Fourteen year old Vovochka idolises president Putin and seeks to put the world to rights after learning about homosexuality in school.


He terrorises his neighbourhood and pledges to do his work in the name of his great leader.


A Little Hero presents the difficult reality of being gay in Putin's Russia with a literal interpretation of this sentiment - a surreal crematorium disguised as an experimental 'treatment' device.
