One of the most influential playwrights in Russia today, Yaroslava Pulinovich, was born in Omsk, Russia in 1987, into a family of journalists. In 2009 she graduated from the Yekaterinburg Theatre Institute, where she trained under Nikolai Koliada. Her plays have been performed in the UK, the US, Poland, Estonia, Ukraine and in over forty theatres across Russia: in Moscow, St Petersburg, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk and many other cities.

Yaroslava’s plays won various international contests including the Voice of a Generation Prize, the Debut Prize, the Eurasia Prize, the Best New Play award at the Golden Mask Festival, and the Harlequin Prize. Her play Untitled was previously presented at the Royal Court, London. Moscow Times named her play Natasha’s Dream as one of the top ten Russian plays of the 21st century.

Sommambulism, one of her most recent plays, is a serious and honest discussion about life and relationship. Somnambulism is a drama of new wave, but the basis of the play brings us back to the eternal question – are we alive or are we deeply asleep? The main character of the play has decided to speak the truth after one tragic event of in his life… And the truth is not going to be nice…
