“A beautiful and touching piece about a young woman who falls in love just before the first world war. Fragile, slightly mad and tinged with sadness.” The Guardian
The Reds and the Whites do battle, the Germans invade, tea is served from a samovar and there is a very big wedding. Actors change roles and get confused about which side they are on and someone gets an umbrella shoved up their nose!
NIE tell the story of Maria Michaliovna whose life spans the Soviet century in a remarkable tale of love, loss, calamity and hope using a unique mix of physical theatre, storytelling, multiple languages, European ensemble and live music.
Winner of the Herald Angel and Total Theatre award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Jury Prize in festivals from Bosnia to Norway, don’t miss your chance to see this magical slice of storytelling theatre!
“A totally beguiling, tragi-comic caper full of NIE’s trademark mayhem and music.” The Herald
