Description

In Moscow, in 1926, a housing crisis rages. In a cramped apartment, Ludmilla, a put-upon housewife, lives in dreamy complacency with her cheerful despot of a husband, Kolya. One day, Kolya’s handsome comrade, Volodya, arrives from the country, but can find no lodgings, Kolya offers him their sofa. When Kolya returns early from a business trip, he is shocked to discover that Ludmilla and Volodya have become lovers. Kolya moves out, but there is still nowhere to live, so he reluctantly returns, now HE takes the sofa, leaving Ludmilla and Volodya the bed. The love triangle plays out as finally Ludmilla leaves the two alone for an exciting and unknown future free from them both. Kolya and Volodya are left to decide who gets the bed and who takes the sofa.

Cygnet’s original production in 2004 was the winner of 8 San Diego theatre awards, including a San Diego Critics Award for Outstanding Musical Revival and a Patte Award for Outstanding Production.
