KHOJALY - The Play

KHOJALY is a play that gives a voice to the innocent Azerbaijanis whose lives were changed forever by the massacre that took place in February 1992 at KHOJALY, a town in Azerbaijan.

Created by Aloff Theatre from the words and testimony of the survivors via interview workshops with our creative team in Azerbaijan, a cast of all ages will take to the stage to step forward and tell individual stories in the form of a testimonial drama.

Written by Nick Awde / Directed by Hannah Eidinow / Produced by Sanan Aliyev

MIDNIGHT - A New Musical

The world première of MIDNIGHT a haunting new musical thriller that matches a darkly witty psychological drama with a heart-breakingly beautiful score…

Welcome to Azerbaijan, part of the police state of the Soviet Union in the dying minutes of 1937. The past year has been the worst of the Great Terror, in which the paranoid dictator Joseph Stalin unleashed wave upon wave of arrests. Millions have been tortured and executed. Informants and spies are everywhere. No one knows who to trust.

Book and Lyrics by Timothy Knapman / Music and Lyrics by Laurence Mark Wythe / Based on the play “Citizens of Hell” by Elchin


Seven Beauties is based on the 12th-century romantic epic of the same name written by Nizami Ganjavi, reflecting the sophisticated thinking produced by Islamic mysticism and the clash of empires.

Part mystical allegory, part romance, part fairy tale, with sumptuous costumes and unexpected sets, Seven Beauties is a provocative observation of our multicultural world, where spirituality and goodness are open to everyone of any nationality or creed.
