We Are The Himalayas

Written by Mark Langham, Directed by Richard Cornally
Brave New Word Theatre
Downstairs Venue #1, Fringe HQ, Kings Cross, 3-27 July 2019
Sound Designer

“I know you’re scared. You damn well should be… this place is dreadful.”

Anna Larina was known and renowned as the wife of one of the architects of the Russian Revolution, Nikolai Bukharin. With his downfall and execution, she was persecuted for twenty years, separated from her family, and spent her prime years in a succession of gulags.

Witnessing both the rise of the Revolution, and purges it conducted, she lived both sides of the hypocrisy of Stalin’s rule. She was loved as the partner of the golden child of the Revolution, and then condemned as the partner of a traitor. Through her, we see the very human cost of ideology, and the unimaginable triumph of the human spirit in the face of the hellish machine determined to subdue it.

The extraordinary story of Anna Larina. Punished for being a wife.

Shortlisted: 2019 Patrick White Playwrights Award
