In 2018 Night Train Theatre Company presented the English language premiere of MAKLENA, a poetic tragicomedy about a 13-year-old who gets lost in her fairy tale vision of life under the Soviet Union.

Set in 1930s Poland, a striking Polish house facade boasting three floors showed the strict class divide, whilst aged factory crates represented the industrialised world within the Soviet Union, and were utilised through skilful movement direction and physical
theatre.
