FOURTEEN LITTLE RED HUTS

Andrey Platonov’s Fourteen Little Red Huts (1932) is the first, greatest and at
the same time least-known masterpiece of the theatre of the absurd.
At one level it is an existential drama closer in spirit to Beckett and Ionesco
than to any previous theatre. At another level, it is a response
to the terror famine of the early 1930s. As a political satirist, Platonov is
more merciless even than Brecht.

The play is surprisingly seldom produced. This production is directed in
Russian by Robert Chandler, co-translator of The Return, Soul, Happy Moscow and
The Foundation Pit.
The actors are students from Queen Mary College, including Josefine Olsen, Olga
Izmaylova, Natalia Suvorova, Katya Grigoruk, Paulina Wojnar & Wolfgang Matt.
The stage-manager is Danica Wyber-Thomas.
