Thurs 18 and Fri 19 March :: Bloody Mary at Pushkin House

The Scotland-Russia Forum and Freestage Theatre present
A play by contemporary Russian playwright Dmitri Boyko
BLOODY MARY

Translated into English by Michael Falchikov
Music by Michail Gnesin
Director Yelena Gudkova-Schellenberg
Producer Svetlana Shevchenko
Cast: Yelena Gudkova-Schellenberg, Dewi Wynne Jones, David Crosbie, Mary
McMahon, Nick Halliwell
Following the success of the premiere of contemporary Russian play Bloody
Mary in Edinburgh, the Scotland-Russian Forum in association with Pushkin
House will present the play in London. It will be on for two days in March
2010 followed by Questions & Answers sessions with the cast.
The author described the genre of Bloody Mary as �an evening cocktail�.
However, his play is not a mixture of vodka and tomato juice, it is a
mixture of something romantic and chaotic, funny and desperate, equally
challenging and profound. It is a love story of Mary and John who try to
reveal the future by digging up the past and� dealing with their younger
selves. This playful piece of nonsense, full of absurd humour, explores
the great effort we invest in seeking fulfillment and harmony.
