  • Theatr Iolo will be marking the centenary with a series of workshops, rehearsed readings and scratch performances for secondary schools, colleges and youth theatre groups. We'll be exploring the revolutionary developments in Russian theatre practice around this period by Meyerhold, Michael Chekhov, Stanislavsky and Vakhtangov and plays like Heart of the Dog by Bulgakov. The activity will take place throughout Autumn.

  • One of the greatest of all plays and written shortly before the Russian Revolution, Chekhov’s comedy captures a world on the brink of social upheaval. It is a witty, compassionate study of humanity’s flaws, foibles and our refusal to face what is right in front of us. This radical reworking from writer Gary Owen and director Rachel O’Riordan places the action in early 80s Britain, at the dawn of another revolution – the Thatcher regime, which swept away the post-war consensus and created the country we live in today.

    Date: 13/10/2017 to 28/10/2017
