Life And Fate at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Theatre Royal Haymarket, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

ABOUT LIFE AND FATE

Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg ‘the finest ensemble theatre in Europe’ – Peter Brook – returns to London this spring for a strictly limited engagement.

Vasily Grossman’s celebrated novel, banned because of the parallels it drew between Nazism and Soviet Communism, is being adapted for the stage for the very first time.

From Nazi concentration camps to the Gulags of Siberia and the Soviet nuclear programme, the battle of Stalingrad looms large as the characters work out their destinies in a world torn by ideological tyranny and war.

Life And Fate runs from 8 May 2018 until 20 May 2018 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

It’s early 1943. Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia are in a bitter struggle for their very survival.

Life and Fate is a sweeping panorama of Soviet Society, an epic tale of a country told through the fate of a single Jewish family, the Shtrum’s.

REVIEWS

“Big, frightening, merciless yet incredibly touching, tortured and beautiful … a requiem of a performance.” Kommersant, Moscow

“Beautiful, terrifying and resoundingly contemporary” Financial Times on the Paris Premiere
