“I’ve always loved you and when you love someone, you love the whole person, just as he or she is, and not as you would like them to be.” Through the impact of one woman’s decision, Helen Edmundson’s celebrated and ‘exemplary adaptation’ (The Times) of Anna Karenina looks at the cost of love on the human soul. Anna is enchanting and admired but empty – until a chance encounter throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair. Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to finding meaning in life. This fast paced and stylish production is sure to intrigue both those new to Tolstoy’s seminal novel and fan’s of one of the greatest works of fiction. Presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books Ltd
