Subject: Invitation to a play from a friend of Dario Thuburn
I’m writing to invite you with family and friends to a Russian play which I
have translated and am directing. Dario Thuburn, an old friend of mine,
suggested I get in touch to let you know about the production and gave me
your email address. I am very keen to invite as many people with an interest
in Russia and that region to the production. My theatre company, Sputnik,
aims to stage the best new Russian drama in the UK.
The play illuminates the fate of the elderly in modern-day Russia in the
form of an imaginative and dark comedy.
The play is called Russian National Mail, and this will be its British
premiere. It won a Golden Mask Award in Russia. The play opens on the 23rd
of August at the Old Red Lion, for a three week run. The lead is played by
Kevin McMonagle (RNT, RSC, Royal Court).
I have attached a flyer below which has all the information about it.
I do hope you will make it. Please do ask for me and say hello, if you come
and aren’t rushing off after the play, as I will be there at every
