Anna Karenina at the Abbey Theatre, Programme Notes for Audio Described Performance 14th January, 2017
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.
