This play is about the most famous performance-art piece in history. In protest of the illegal 2012 presidential election, Pussy Riot – an anonymous Russian feminist protest punk rock group – staged a performance inside Moscow’s Christ the Savior Church. Their 48-second “Punk Prayer” and the viral video of that performance put them in the public eye. The Kremlin responded by hunting down and arresting three members of the group.
