On the Strings of the Rain - A Russian language play
Outside the window is the rainy London autumn. High ceilings, dank walls. The apartment is a lonely woman Bella. Sometimes it is visited by famous people, courageous generals, oriental beauties and American billionaires, but more often it has to spend days and nights in the company of a not verbose servant. Memories from a past, beautiful life wander around as ghosts and bright flashes come alive in the mistress's stories. But more and more often the evenings turn into a struggle with a terrible tormenting loneliness. And suddenly, a bell rings. The visit of a young man as an opportunity of real life, as a chance to start again, as a new motive in the melody of the ancient tango.
A romantic comedy with detective elements permeated with light humor and the charm of the London rain.
Polished and intimate, the Vancouver Playhouse exudes a cozy atmosphere that lends a familial dimension to dance, film and theatre performances. The open plan stage makes the space particularly appealing for acoustically-driven performances like chamber music and spoken theatre.Explore This Venue
