On a cold Moscow night in 1925, a stray dog is lured to the laboratory of a rich and eccentric professor, where his endocrine system is replaced with that of a recently deceased man. As the dog morphs into an increasingly human creature, the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare. The creature's interest in revolutionary values wars with the traditional views of the professor, the housing committee banging at his door to divide up his flat for increased occupancy. A black comedy based on the work of Kiev-born author Mikhail Bulgakov (most famous for 'The Master and Margarita'), 'Heart of a Dog' brings a cult Soviet satire for the first time to the English stage.
