Written by Angus Cameron and directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio, NYC), DIЯT is a thrilling and seductive exploration of sexuality, solidarity and persecution in modern-day Russia.
$1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Russian LGBT Network, an organisation promoting equal rights and respect for human dignity throughout Russia.
Please note: The performance on Friday 5th March has changed times from 8pm to 8:30pm since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.
