New play about Magnitsky murder

A play about the prison death of Russian whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky is being staged in London. The British theater debut of ‘One Hour Eighteen Minutes’ will open at the New Diorama Theatre on November 13.

Magnitsky died in a Russian prison three years ago. The thirty-seven year old lawyer was detained while investigating the $230 million looting of a fund run by Hermitage Capital. He uncovered evidence of criminal involvement by police officials, bankers, judges and lawyers.

He was held for a year without trial before his death. In prison he was beaten and repeatedly denied medical attention.

The play, written by Russian playwright Elena Gremina, depicts Magnitsky’s final hours. It is being stage in London in English, and runs from November 13 through December 1.
After the performance on Friday, November 16 — the third anniversary of Magnitsky’s death — there will be a post show discussion with William Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital. Browder has been running a worldwide campaign to bring to justice those responsible for Magnitsky’s death.
