Anna Karenina (stage version)

By Leo Tolstoy Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£6.49

Helen Edmundson's celebrated and ‘exemplary adaptation' (The Times) of Leo Tolstoy's enduring classic is a vibrant and deeply moving meditation on the nature of love.

Anna is beautiful and admired but empty – until a chance meeting throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair. Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to find meaning in life – and a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself.

Originally produced by Shared Experience, winning the Time Out Award for Outstanding Theatrical Event of 1992.This edition was published alongside a revival of the play at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2011.

Press Quotes

'Theatre this engrossing is rare'

Time Out

'The aim is not to report the novel but to recreate it as a piece of theatre... a dramatisation which is symbolically accurate as well as theatrically compelling'
