Cold War

Author(s): Book by Conor McPherson, music by Elvis Costello, based on the film by Paweł Pawlikowski Company: Almeida Theatre

Poland, 1949.

Zula is bold and brilliant, a singer who ignites the stage. Wiktor is withdrawn and damaged, a composer longing to write. Irresistibly drawn to each other, they dream of escape. But in communist-controlled Poland, that can be a dangerous thing.

Based on Paweł Pawlikowski’s Academy Award-nominated film, Cold War is an epic love story spanning the decades and breadth of Europe at its most divided.

Featuring traditional Polish songs, choral arrangements and music from Grammy Award-winner Elvis Costello, Conor McPherson's (Girl from the North Country, The Weir) adaptation of Cold War is a story of passion, redemption and the journey to be free.
