Filter Theatre’s bold new version of Gorky’s 1906 play, in which a provincial town is shaken from its lethargy by the imminent arrival of a major railway line.
Two railway engineers sweep into the lives of the locals with the force of a gale, challenging stale romances, sour marriages, and the power of local government.
Does the railway represent progress or a grave danger to the local community?
This new version of Gorky’s 1906 play is created by Filter, renowned for their original devised work and reimagining of classic texts, together with the Company of Guildhall School.
Barbarians is translated by Kitty Hunter-Blair and Jeremy Brooks
Co-directed by Oliver Dimsdale and Victoria Moseley for Filter Theatre, devised with the Company
Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama
The opening performance of this production is dedicated to the memory of Diana Devlin (1941–2020), former Head of Drama Studies at Guildhall School.
