chekhov and a white russian, here's to being cultured...

anyone lucky enough to live in london will know that often the overwhelming choice of theatre destinations on any one night, can give even the most seasoned theatre goer a headache. from the tried and tested companies and shows of the West End, to the newer, more off the wall productions in the east (which, in this writers experience, often feature a great deal of people running around in the nip. why?)

but for the confused, or even those just looking for something a bit different, let me point you in the direction of some alternative theatrical delights...

this month sees the arrival on our shores of the moscow-based sovremennik theatre, a leading russian company which has won more awards then i’ve drank vodka. founded in 1956, the company is appearing in london with a very limited run of three of their widely acclaimed masterpieces; Three Sisters, Into The Wind and The Cherry Orchard. all performances will be in russian with english surtitles. this is a theatre treat not to be missed, combining good classic drama with a linguistic twist. and you might even bump into roman abramovich!  make sure you don’t miss out.
