 The White Factory

Marylebone Theatre
14 September - 4th November 2023

Spanning several decades, The White Factory explores the life of Yosef Kaufman, a Holocaust survivor from Łódź, haunted by his wartime experiences as he tries to build a new future in 1960’s Brooklyn.

This is the world premiere of a daring collaboration between Ukrainian, Russian and British creatives, led by writer Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of the bestselling Metro2033 franchise, and visionary theatre director Maxim Didenko – both of whom are political exiles and vehemently outspoken critics of the war against Ukraine.


This heart-wrenching drama of love, endurance, despair and hope follows one man’s journey from the Łódź ghetto of 1940s Poland to ‘sixties America, where the possibility of a new life is tested to the limit by the remnants of his past.

Produced by Oliver King and Ekaterina Kashyntseva for Belka Productions, and managed by Wild Yak.
