The Abbey Theatre is showing Marina Carr’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s first true novel; Anna Karenina.
Russia is changing. Rules have been broken. Chaos is looming. Families are falling apart.
Marina Carr, one of the finest playwrights of our generation, brings a new perspective to Anna Karenina in this version of an epic love story.
Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is an examination of a country in the midst of extraordinary change. Through the impact of one woman’s decision, it looks at the troubling cost of love on the human soul.
Wayne Jordan (Oedipus, Twelfth Night, 16 Possible Glimpses) reunites with Marina Carr to bring this explosive story to life.
