PUSHKIN'S HALF HOUR

Written & performed by John Agard

Date: Saturday 29 December 

Time: 7.30pm

Venue: White Hart Hotel (Sheriff's Room)

Address: White Hart Hotel High Street, Lewes, Sussex BN7 1XE

Tickets: £8.00 advance / £10.00 door

In this whimsical whirlwind homage to mixed race Russian poet, Pushkin, Caribbean-British poet John Agard transforms his famous verse novel, Eugene Onegin, into a sort of contemporary parlour production in which he plays all the parts, not just the narrator, Pushkin, and his alter-ego, Onegin, but love interest Tatyana and the old nursemaid Filipevna! First date in a short preview tour that includes the Square Tower in Portsmouth on Sunday 30th December and culminates in two performances at Pushkin's House, in London (Jan10th & 11th). Details for these events below.

The performance features live incidental music by Sophia Poznansky (accordion) and period songs in Russian performed by multilingual cabaret chanteuse, Pam Hewitt. A Crosspath production, directed by Mark C. Hewitt.

"... hilarious and moving by turns, with sharply satiric intelligence" (Michael Horovitz)

“… spooky, quirky and profound” (audience feedback)
