SUMMARY

Violence, passion and betrayal erupt in the world premier of Lermontov’s groundbreaking 19th century Russian novel. A Byronic anti‐hero, exiled from the army, begins an audacious affair with the stunning, fiercely independent Princess Mary.

The “Must See” Stage Award‐nominated ensemble KUDOS return

with their trademark physicality and storytelling.

A Hero of Our Time was voted a “neglected classic” on BBC Radio 4. Adapted by director and actor Alex McSweeney, appearing in Steven Berkoff’s Oedipus at the Pleasance as part of Edinburgh Fringe 2011.

Mikhail Lermontov (1814‐41) is a Russian writer, who became the country’s most important poet after Pushkin’s death. He was exiled by Tsar Nicholas I for his controversial poem Death of the Poet.

KUDOS were nominated for The Stage Award for Best Ensemble in 2009 for Face in the Crowd at the Underbelly.

“He writes with the precision of a surgeon but the heart of Caligula”

Neil LaBute on Lermontov
