In her mind Diana is a glamorous singer-raconteuse at The Former Persons’ Club in Petrograd, and Leon her accompanist. In reality the pair are patients in a mental asylum heading for closure. When not singing traditional folk songs or reminiscing about her life as a Russian aristocrat felled by the Revolution, Diana is forced through psychoanalysis to confront her real memories and scars from a life with an unstable mother. What will happen to this fragile human being when the doors of her only sanctuary look set to close forever? What of her only friend?

A darkly funny drama about friendship and politics, madness and mothers.

★★★★

"A quirky little gem."

The Reviews Hub

"Laura Louise Baker dominates the stage, comfortably switching between her moods and personas, equally at home as the fabulous cabaret singer and the nervous and fragile former mental patient."

Fringe Guru

"The Off-Off-Off-Broadway Company has built up a unique body of work for its dream-like, slightly decadent fantasies."

Robbie Carnegie, Buxton Fringe review
