The production will re-open The Barn on 18 May before opening Arcola’s new outdoor space, Arcola Outside
The Barn Theatre in Cirencester and the Arcola Theatre in London will be teaming up to co-produce the world premiere of Cat Goscovitch’s new play, A Russian Doll. The play, which is based on a true story, follows twenty-something Masha as she becomes embroiled in the world of data and deceit as a member of Russia’s disinformation campaigns during the EU referendum.
A Russian Doll, which will be directed by Nicolas Kent (All The President’s Men?, Another World) will run in Cirencester from 18 May to 13 June 2021, with press night on 20 May at 7pm. Following the run in the Cotswolds, the production will open Arcola’s new outdoor space, Arcola Outside, in East London.
The world premiere will feature design by Liz Da Costa, lighting by Sam Rowcliffe-Tanner, sound and composition by Harry Smith and AV design by Benjamin Collins.
The production will also mark the Barn Theatre’s first live indoor performances since their run of Peter Pan was cut short on Christmas Eve due to the Cotswolds moving into Tier 3 prior to the third national lockdown.
Tickets for the Barn Theatre run are now on sale at barntheatre.org.uk, with prices from £11.50.
Casting and performance dates for the run at the Arcola Theatre to be announced in due course.
