The Death of Stalin (15) Armando Iannucci’s black comedy has garnered rave reviews. It follows the Soviet dictator's last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death. Standout performances from Simon Russell Beale (Beria), Michael Palin (Molotov) and Andrea Riseborough (Stalin’s daughter Svetlana). Film starts at 7.30pm, doors open 7pm. Tickets £5.50 in advance from Martock News, Moorlands Precinct and Martock Gallery, Water St. or £6 on the door. Refreshments available.

“The Death of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.” 

Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian

“Iannucci has proven time and again, with The Thick of It and its US spin-off, Veep, his ability to uncover the vanity of power-grabs and the ways weak, grasping personalities expose themselves in politics.  Quip for quip, the face-offs here match those shows in speed and finesse, while heading towards an altogether more chilling conclusion: the laughs are fully intended to stop dead at a certain point, as the actual import of the back-stabbing and table-turning sinks in.”
