Insite Performance presents

LARISA AND THE MERCHANTS

by Alexander Ostrovsky in a new version by Samuel Adamson

May 01 2013 - Jun 01 2013

A UK Premiere

Love v. Money. Value v. Cost . The Merchants v. Larisa

This passionate, razor-sharp black comedy about a penniless woman and the men who want her is brought to British audiences for the first time.

In the marketplace where merchants cut deals, love has no value. But Larisa has only one thing to sell and she's in desperate need of a buyer. Can she up her own worth, or will the merchants drive her to a bargain she cannot possibly hope to keep?
