Help The Actors' Program fundraise for our end of year grad show, 'Jacinda' written by Sam Brooks. Come support the students who have spent a year learning from our industry's best, and laugh your socialist socks off at this special screening of The Death of Stalin, dubbed "one of the funniest films of the 21st century" by Slash Film.

From Rottentomatoes, where it has a 96% rating:

"The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in The Death of Stalin, an uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop).

Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government?

Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast."
