The latest Russian visitors to the Barbican are Moscow’s prestigious Theatre of Nations, here presenting ‘Shukshin’s Stories’, a compendium of comic, pithy tales of Russian life written by Vasily Shukshin, star of Soviet cinema. His short stories and film adaptations portrayed recognisable provincial types from the 1970s Soviet Union with both irony and affection, and are still beloved by Russian audiences today. The production is directed by Alvis Hermanies and stars the great Russian actor Evgeny Mironov, also Theatre of Nations artistic director. Performed in Russian with English subtitles.
