See them in...

11 January – 11 February 2017

by Maxim Gorky

translated by Jeremy Brooks and Kitty Hunter-Blair
Directed by Helena Kaut-Howson

Gorky’s masterful portrait of the disenfranchised and left-behind reveals a society at breaking point.

15 February – 25 March 2017

by Anton Chekhov

in an English version by Trevor Griffiths, from a translation by Helen Rappaport
Directed by Mehmet Ergen

Chekhov’s final masterpiece shows a family on the edge of ruin, and a nation on the brink of revolution.

Change is in the air.

Arcola’s new season investigates a world on the brink of profound change. It explores the causes and the colossal impact of the Russian Revolution 100 years on, and considers the people and ideas which could shape the next century.

Join us for new productions, readings, talks, screenings, special events and more.

“Arcola Theatre’s vision is of a genuinely radical theatre, constantly reinventing itself to respond to, interpret and have relevance to an ever-changing world. We look forward to sharing our REVOLUTION season with audiences old and new.”
Mehmet Ergen, Artistic Director
