Theatre, Stage & Film

Beauty, passion, virtue, and tragedy collide in this classic tale of forbidden desires set amidst the chaos of a changing Russia. A powerful reflection of the cost of love on the human soul as well as a startling look at a country in the midst of upheaval, Tolstoy’s essential novel follows Anna, a restless woman locked in a marriage with a man several years her senior and mother to a young son.

1870s Russia is no place to find oneself in an illicit love tangle, but that is exactly what happens to Anna after a fateful encounter with the handsome and charming Count Alexis Vronsky, who just so happens to also be the object of affection for another woman, Kitty, who has recently been courted by the Count, choosing him over the good-natured Levin.

Now, with heartsickness setting in, it’s not only Anna who must make a choice. But will the romantic ideal set everyone free or ruin it all?

Watch the drama unfold in this new adaptation of Tolstoy’s play, created by Marina Carr, one of the finest playwrights of our generation. Reuniting with Wayne Jordan (Oedipus, Twelfth Night, 16 Possible Glimpses), the epic love story is set to be brought to explosive new life. Get your tickets while they last.
