What is currently on at Arcola (V1422226940)

A Hero of Our Time

A Hero of Our TimeT0170068931
Sex, power, love, alienation and violence. A thrilling Russian dissection of the cruel and complicated games played by men, laying intimate thoughts unflinchingly bare. You are invited into the mind of a soldier, where bars and ballrooms become battlefields. A show that blurs the line between theatrical and non-theatrical spaces, between comedy and tragedy, between the nineteenth century and our time.
Author Mikhail Lermontov

Production details

Created by a new international company, comprised of artists from the UK, Belarus and Columbia, A Hero Of Our Time began life in a social housing living room in London in front of 12 spectators. Then it travelled to Edinburgh for a sell-out run. Now it comes to the Arcola for 4 weeks only.
