PIDOR and the Wolf is a full-length play with music. The piece uses Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf as a framework to tell a true story about the government-sanctioned atrocities being committed against queer Chechens. These violations of human rights are still actively occurring. "Pidor" is Russian slang for faggot.
