The Anarchist

Author(s): Karina Wiedman
Company: Jermyn Street Theatre
Running time: 1h 20min approx

Middle-aged, middle-management Dasha is ordered to quell the anti-government protests in her factory by firing sixty workers. Her only escape is a one-way ticket to JFK, but when Dasha prepares to flee she cannot escape memories of her rebellious youth resisting the Soviets. As Belarus heads to the polls, Dasha must decide.

Lead production in Jermyn Street Theatre's Footprints Festival, the play that won the Woven Voices Prize for migrant playwrights is directed by the theatre's Carne Deputy Director Ebenezer Bamgboye. Judges hailed The Anarchist as gripping, timely, and deeply moving. Originally from Kazakhstan, Karina Wiedman lived in Russia and Belarus before moving to the UK. This is her first play.
