The Stanislavski Centre at Rose Bruford College is pleased to be working with Pushkin House on the following exciting event, taking place at Pushkin House, Bloomsbury Square, London, on Wednesday 27 March 2019 at 7.00pm. 

Pushkin House in association with the Stanislavski Centre presents an exclusive performance of the play Misha and Lena by ground-breaking Russian theatre company Teatr.doc.

This deeply moving play is about Mikhail Ugarov and Elena Gremina, the founders of Teatr.doc using material from their social media posts over many years, telling the story of their own relationship and that of the theatre, and the problems they faced right up to their untimely deaths in April and May 2018. Gremina and Ugarov brought a new voice to Russian theatre, and documented political repressions in Russia over recent years.

The play is by Zarema Zaudinova, who trained closely with Ugarov and Gremina over the last three years of their lives, and is translated into English by Sasha Dugdale.

Read by Sasha Dugdale and Jonathan Cullen. Followed by Q&A with Zarema Zaudinova, during which she will talk about the history of Teatr.doc and its future.

Tickets for this event, taking place at Pushkin House on Wednesday 27 March 2019, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm, can be booked at the following site, priced at £12 (£10 concessions):

Pushkin House is located at 5A Bloomsbury Square, London WC1A 2TA.
