"A stunningly theatrical original work."
"The other day, an acquaintance complained to me that theater produces too many old stories. I can counter with Anna, which shows how a familiar old tale can be a refreshingly new theatrical experience offering wisdom about contemporary problems." - Broad Street Review
"Brenna Geffers and her ensemble have done something extraordinary in successfully transforming Tolstoy's epic novel into an intimate theatrical experience."
Adapted and Directed by Brenna Geffers
Based on Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Literature’s greatest heroine comes to new life in this world premiere stage adaptation, written and directed by Brenna Geffers. In Anna, this sweeping Russian epic is transformed into a make-shift travelling show by a wandering theater troupe armed with a collection of rickety antiques and instruments. They perform this story, set in the shifting landscape of Imperial Russia, to seek refuge from their own unsettling world. You are invited on their journey, and Anna's, as they travel together toward the story's unavoidable end.
