At present, the government has not announced a date when theatres and other entertainment venues can reopen.

Show details


The Yalta Game is based on the short story The Lady with the Dog by Anton Chekhov: a married man and a young married woman meet on holiday in Yalta and have a brief affair that transforms their lives.

Afterplay also draws on Chekhov: Uncle Vanya's niece Sonya and the three sisters' brother Andrey meet by chance in a run-down Moscow cafe in the early 1920s and begin to uncover long hidden truths.
