The Tale of Wasted Time
By Evgeny Schwartz (A new adaptation by Tatiana Dittrich)
A fairy tale for children. Performed in Russian.

Evgeny Schwartz was one of those unique, original voices in Russian playwriting. His fairy tales were mostly aimed at grown-ups, who had the misfortune to be born into a totalitarian state. Schwartz's dragons and evil magicians could be easily recognised in everyday Soviet reality. Most of them, sadly, had access to unlimited power.

This particular fable is directed towards children, but, despite its simplicity, it warns its audience about the value of time. Perhaps children need that warning the most, because in their innocence they do not appreciate just how important and elusive time is.

Schwartz does not moralise or patronise his audience, but rather entertains them and invites their young brains to think and to imagine.

Come and join us with your children, or bring young people you simply care about. After the show you will be left amused and, hopefully, have things to ponder on.

Coming in 2018...
By Tatiana Dittrich
Yet another project with the gifted troupe of Goodge Street Experimental Theatre; a play about the Russian revolution and the human bonds broken & severed by it.
Lynn Ruth Miller  
Strength mixed with fragility, thirst for life and a never-failing sense of humour and a generous, loving heart...

If you are well familiar with the London Fringe scene, I'm sure you already guessed who am I talking about. Of course, it's the one and only Lynn Ruth Miller!

I've been lucky enough to know Lynn Ruth for ten years and for all this time we have cherished one artistic dream — to stage a show based on her life.

It won't necessarily be a comedic one, but a production which would reflect on the ups and downs of Lynn's long and rich life, without shying away even from some of it's most painful moments.

In that show laughter would be mixed with tears and all other numerous emotions that weave the tapestry of human life. It wouldn't be a cabaret, or a laugh out loud evening, but one that would cause the audience to truly feel, think and reflect.

A few years ago we were able to create a radio version of this idea. True, it was always meant for stage, but radio theatre with its huge variety of sound effects and pauses gave it a whole new perspective. Now, however, finally, it feels like the time is right for our idea to materialize on stage.

So, please, wish us luck and watch this space, as they say!
