Red and Orange Members with a ticket to Complicite's The Master and Margarita are invited to take part in our first ever Members’ Discussion Group.

Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita is a classic of 20th century literature and has a cult following. In this event Dr Julie Curtis of Oxford University will give Barbican Members an insight into the background and key themes of this much-loved novel, after which you will be encouraged to split into smaller groups and share your thoughts in a relaxed and informal book-club style discussion.

Tickets are free but limited so book now, RSVP with your name, Membership number and number of tickets required to

Dr Curtis' work focuses in particular on 20th-century Russian prose and drama, especially Mikhail Bulgakov. Her publications include 'Manuscripts Don't Burn: Mikhail Bulgakov, a Life in Letters and Diaries' (London: Bloomsbury, 1991 and 2012) and 'Bulgakov's Last Decade: The Writer as Hero' (Cambridge and New York: Cambridge University Press, 1987 and 2011). Her new biography of Evgeny Zamiatin will be published by Harvard University Press in 2013.
