Show Information and Cast Breakdown
By Helen Edmundson. Adapted from the novel by Leo Tolstoy.
THE STORY:"Married to a provincial governor, the punctilious Karenin, Anna revolts against her life of compromise when she meets the charming officer Vronsky. But two other love affairs have been given their proper, important place in this adaptation: the rocky marriage of Anna's philandering brother and the on-off courtship between Kitty...and Levin. Edmundson dares to bring Anna and Levin together for the first spoken words of the play. 'This is my story,' Anna murmurs. 'It seems to be mine, too,' comes the reply, and for the remainder of the play scenes are set and emotions summarized through the imaginary exchange of their confidences." (The Times, London) Edmundson illuminates the story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death, while the young landowner, Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness.
