The Rasputin Show
Archive :: production:T2139162963, play:S1120175066, venue:V226
A staged reading of an experimental piece from 1968. The original production was compared in its presentation to jazz and comic strips and loved or loathed for its chaotic creativity; an exploratory piece with a physical and visual language, it was originally directed by Chris Parr. The original show transferred from the arts lab Brighton Combination, newly formed by Noel Greig, Jenny Harris and Ruth Marks, to the Arts Theatre in the West End, where it, 'richly deserved the critical spotlight.' Our version will be directed by Georgina Sowerby and Jon Lee (Artistic Directors, Dirty Market) with an inter-generational cast including veterans of the alternative theatre movement and young performers, encountering a new style of work.
