    In the Donbas region of Ukraine, a war is raging and no one is safe. Based on astonishing testimonies from the outset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014, BAD ROADS explores the heartbreaking effects of conflict on intimate relationships.

    Kyiv-born playwright Natal’ya Vorozhbit deftly intertwines themes of love, sex, trauma, loss, and resistance through powerful and darkly comic accounts of what it is to be a woman in wartime.

    The leading Ukrainian playwright of her generation, “a Ukrainian Sarah Kane” (The Guardian), Natal’ya Vorozhbit premiered BAD ROADS at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2017, and wrote and directed the feature film version in 2020, which was Ukraine’s official Oscar selection in 2022. 

    Ukrainian Canadian Andrew Kushnir is an award-winning playwright, director, activist, and artistic director of the socially engaged theatre company Project: Humanity, a leading developer of verbatim theatre in Canada including Towards Youth: A Play On Radical Hope and Freedom Singer at Crow’s Theatre.
