Anna Karenina

by Leo Tolstoy

Anna Karenina artwork

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 Kate Wasserberg, Artistic Director of acclaimed theatre company Stockroom (previously Out of Joint). 

‘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.’
