A top flight cast are powering the premiere of Kate Mulvany's madcap play about inept assassins and a Machiavellian mastermind
Is there anything Kate Mulvany can’t do? If she’s not wowing audiences across town as the hunchbacked king in Bell Shakespeare’s gender-bending Richard III, she’s lending her writing chops to another historical badass in The Rasputin Affair.
This production, directed by John Sheedy, features John Gaden, Tom Budge (Endgame), Zindzi Okenyo (Disgraced) and Hamish Michael (Janet King) as a bunch of inept assassins plotting to take out the mad monk in 1917 St Petersburg.
As Mulvany says, “When you’re starting with pink cupcakes and ending with the death of one of the biggest tyrants in Russian history, you know you’re in for a rollicking ride.”
