Alina is inspired by the true experiences of a 19-year-old volunteer Ukrainian combat medic who leaves everything behind to go to the front line of one of the deadliest battles of the war in Eastern Ukraine in 2015 — the battle for the Donetsk Airport. But it is when she returns home to the shock of “peaceful” civilian life that she realizes her struggle does not end at the front.

Alina is an exhilarating, breathless journey toward and away from war.

Donate in Support of Ukraine

Pyretic Productions has been fundraising in support of Alina Viatkina, the real-life subject of this play. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion on February 24, 2022, Alina has been raising funds to purchase non-lethal defensive equipment such as bulletproof vests, medical aid, helmets, etc., for front line volunteers in Ukraine.

We will be providing the opportunity to donate to Alina’s efforts at the performance of the play, including cash, cheque, and e-transfer. 100% of your donation will go to support Ukraine’s defence against the Russian invasion.
