Workin Process Presents
a new musical by Maria Shepard
A ‘remarkably original take on a classic story… one you don’t want to miss.’ (Cherwell newspaper)
Almost two years after its sell-out run in Oxford University, ‘Anna Karenina’, an original musical based on Lev Tolstoy’s world-famous novel, is making its London debut, bringing some of the best of what Oxford drama has to offer.
Anna, a young aristocrat, is facing a lifetime of unhappiness in a marriage void of affection. She finds solace from her loneliness upon meeting Captain Vronsky, and embarks on a deeply passionate love affair. However, the pleasure of their infatuation is sharply curbed by the reality of her marriage vows, the risk of losing custody of her child, and the sting of society’s condemnation. Musically, the songs explore their struggles, and those of the interconnected characters Levin, Kitty, Dolly and Oblonsky- interspersed by powerful and punchy chorus numbers.
Lyrics and music by Maria Shepard, book by Maria Shepard and James Tibbles.
‘A thrilling feast for both eyes and ears, a living, breathing spectacle that demands to be seen and heard.’ (Daily Info)
