Sun Line by Meyerhold Centre

Based on Ivan Vyrypaev’s celebrated play, and nominated for 5 Golden Masks, The Meyerhold Theatre Centre’s Sun Line stars celebrated Russian stage and screen stars Yulia Peresild and Andrey Burkovsky. Don’t miss the opportunity to see one of Moscow’s finest theatrical productions, playing in London for three performances only at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells Theatre on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December 2018.

5am. Barbara and Werner have been arguing since 10pm. They are about to pay off the mortgage seven years down the line… but what next? This biting comedy of misperceptions and misunderstandings puts a modern relationship in the dock – will they overcome the seemingly insurmountable barrier that has grown between them?

Considered by many to be Russia’s foremost contemporary playwright, any production based on Ivan Vyrypaev’s work is viewed as an event – especially a new play. Viktor Ryzhakov, the artistic director of Moscow’s Meyerhold Centre directs this intense exploration of 21st century love and (mis) communication, which has just been nominated for 5 Golden Masks 2019 in the categories of best actress, best actor, best director, best play and best short drama production.

Ivan Vyrypaev, Playwright, says of Sun Line:  “I wanted to explore the ways in which people are prevented from making real contact with one another. Sun Line explores 5 or 6 of these means. Some are banal; when we don’t hear, and constantly interrupt each other. Others are more significant; when we experience reality in a completely different way. The purpose of the play is therapeutic in that a couple watching the play might themselves identify and see these struggles worked through for themselves.”

Please note that this play will be performed in Russian with English surtitles.
