Die Reise nach Petuschki – gelesen und vertont von Rufus Beck und Maria Reiter


Venedikt is a sociable drunk. He boozes his way through Moscow, wanting to finally see the Kremlin, but never making it any further than Kursky railway terminal. Jostled by the sober people around him, he ends up on a train and, there too, soon finds his way to his fellow passengers reeking of alcohol. As they drink, they tell each other sad, crazy and tragicomical stories, full of political references and coarse ribaldry, musing on the topics of drinking, women and poets. Gogol, Lenin, Marx, Chekhov ... When the novel Moscow-Petushki by Venedikt Vasilyevich Yerofeyev was published in 1973, it was called everything from “the freshest prose in Russian literature” to “utter nonsense”. But the book became a cult hit and this evening, with narration by Rufus Beck and accordion accompaniment by Maria Reiter, it might just do so again!
