A Russian twist on the poignant and compelling American drama Two for the Seesaw is performed by two of the country’s greatest actors, Chulpan Khamatova and Kirill Safonov.
Set in New York, the play follows the course of an intense and tempestuous affair between a brooding Nebraska lawyer who has relocated to the Big Apple to escape his marriage, and an eccentric dancer he meets at a party. Their relationship comes into jeopardy as their lingering ties to previous partners and the differences in their backgrounds and temperaments come to the fore.
Moscow's critically acclaimed and internationally renowned Sovremennik Theatre returns to the West End this Spring with a triple bill of its most celebrated productions, Three Comrades, Two for the Seesaw and Three Sisters. Directed by Galina Volchek, (Artistic Director and founding member of the Sovremennik Theatre) regarded as one of Russia’s greatest theatre practitioners, all three shows will be performed in Russian with English subtitles. The Sovremennik is one of Russia’s most respected theatres, recognised around the world for its tradition of staging intense psychological dramas, and its bold productions of contemporary plays, Russian classics and international work. The London season will feature a cast and crew of over 100 people including the acclaimed Russian film, theatre and television actress and humanitarian Chulpan Khamatova.
