Once upon a time—in 2005—a twenty-year-old girl named Annie returned to her native Russia to brush up on the language and lose her American accent. Underneath a glamorous Post-Soviet Moscow studded with dangerously high heels, designer bags, and luxe fur coats, she discovers an enchanted motherland teeming with evil stepmothers, wicked witches, and ravenous bears. Annie must learn how to become the heroine of a story more mysterious and treacherous than any childhood fairytale: her own.
A finalist for the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls marks the Yale Rep debuts of Whiting Writers' Award winning playwright Meg Miroshnik and two-time OBIE Award winning director Rachel Chavkin, who recently staged the celebrated musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 in New York.
