Set in Moscow in the summer of 2005, The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls finds American Annie returning to Mother Russia to immerse herself in the language and culture. But her encounters with monstrous bears, axe-wielding prostitutes and an old, terrifying witch along the way might just cost Annie her life. In true folkloric fashion, playwright Meg Miroshnik's award-winning Fairytale Lives shows how a woman's journey through life can be laden with traps -- especially in a faux-glamorous, post-Soviet Russia. See this modern-day fairytale at Prop Thtr in Chicago.
