Presented by Underground International Voices of Theatre in association with The O'Neill Film and Theatrical Foundation, this phantasmagoric tale depicts the ordeals of a fictional figure skater during the harassment and violence against Russian gays that accompanied the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

It would be a harmless, perverse delusion if it were not so chillingly true to the angst and paranoia in Russia today.

The production was canceled shortly before its opening in 2015. The producers decided that the play, a work of staccato verse to be performed in the style of Russian Expressionism, would profit by further development before opening for its world premiere run. The production had also been set back by the loss of a principal cast member who had to leave the production due to a personal emergency.
