Written by the ingenious Nikolay Kolyada and performed by Art Planet, a professional Russian theatre, The Steamboat as a Gift from America is a two-act play in Russian that will be on at The Tabernacle on 28 and 29 February.
Stanislavsky Prize laureate, Kolyada is named as one of the “fathers” of Russia’s contemporary theatre movement. His plays are a must-see for any person interested in theatre and Russian culture.
Irina, a middle-aged single woman meets young Roman. Unpredictable plot, sparkling humour and heartbreaking reality, the characters go through a roller-coaster of emotions. What is the difference between lies and living in the imaginary world? Those pertinent questions have to be answered by our characters and the audience.
