Intimately staged and visually stunning...its simplicity is like a tiny, finely honed blade...”

Since its founding in 2004, TRATS has produced numerous productions throughout  stages in New York City and around the world.  At the core of our inspiration is the undying thirst and passion for Russian literature--from the topsy-turvy genius of Nikolai Gogol to the remarkable psychological insights of Fyodor Dostoevsky, from the touching delicacy of Anton Chekhov to the head-spinning fantasies of Mikhail Bulgakov. In the past, our repertoire featured plays based on the writings of Russia's greatest literary masters, including Alexander Pushkin, Nikolai Gogol, Lev Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Anton Chekhov, Maxim Gorky, Mikhail Bulgakov, Ivan Bunin and more. Additionally, TRATS also staged the works of Hans Christen Andersen, Tennessee Williams, Roald Dahl as well as new plays and translations by company members.  Past shows include:

Three Sisters

Crime and Punishment

Avenue of Wonder (Adapted From Gogol's Nevsky Prospekt)
