Boris Godunov
On from 13 May 2008 till 17 May 2008
by Cheek by Jowl
Genre(s): Drama

About: Boris Godunov

Following the sell-out success of Three Sisters (bite07) and Twelfth Night (bite06), Cheek by Jowl’s stellar Russian ensemble returns for a third year with this startlingly modern epic.

Pushkin’s lyrical masterpiece is a gripping exposé of the seductive appeal of power and the terrible price that must be paid for it. Money, corruption, sex and blood thicken this sinuous and radical play, which was inspired by Shakespeare’s histories.

The ensemble features actors from Three Sisters and Twelfth Night, including Irina Grineva (Masha) and Igor Yasulovitch (Feste), Russian star Evgeny Mironov, with Alexander Feklistov (Vershinin and Sir Toby Belch) in the title role.

Cheek by Jowl has an international reputation for producing captivating theatre of the highest quality. The company has performed all over the world and won many prestigious awards.

In Russian with English surtitles

‘A thrilling vision of Pushkin’s young masterpiece staged with breathtaking panache.’ The Guardian

'A thrilling revelation... presented with gripping fluency and non-stop energetic passion.' The Daily Mail
