Egor Bulychev and the Others
by Maxim Gorky in a translation by Cathy Porter

Director: Michael Walling

*Director Michael Walling will be holding a question and answer session, about the play, with the audience after this performance

Set against a background of revolutionary turmoil and political change, this is the story of a dying businessman and the noisy swarm of attendants at his bedside. While Egor comes to terms with his life and death, predatory family members gather, each demanding a share of his affections, and of course his money. This is a brand new version of the play created in consultation with Cathy Porter.

This amateur production features music devised, arranged and performed by students on our unique BA (Hons) Actor Musicianship Programme.

Prices: Standard £7, Concessions (Over 65s, Students) £5, Rose Bruford College Students £1.50

This production contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
