Anna Karenina

by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina artwork

In this amateur production of Anna Karenina, families are falling apart. Rules are being broken. Chaos is imminent.  

Against the backdrop of 19th century Russia in the midst of extraordinary change, Anna Karenina explores the complex cost of love on the human soul.

Award-winning playwright Marina Carr’s fresh and contemporary take on this classic love story is directed by Derek Bond. 

‘Marina Carr makes Leo Tolstoy’s novel her own in this brilliant adaptation that squarely places the tragic love story at the centre of human experience.’ 
Irish Independent  

Please note, this production contains themes and/or depictions of suicide, alcoholism, domestic violence, infant mortality and childbirth. 

Promoted by Guildhall School of Music & Drama. This amateur production of Anna Karenina is presented by arrangement with The Agency.

A recording of this production will be available to watch online for free from 9 December for 7 days.
