The Rasputin Show
Crazy few days where Georgie directed a staged reading of The Rasputin Show by Michael Almaz at the Southwark Playhouse with The Southwark Elders, Young Company, Visibles and a couple of MA grads from Drama Centre.
From Unfinished Histories:
The original production was compared in its presentation to jazz and comic strips and loved or loathed for its chaotic creativity; an exploratory piece with a physical and visual language.
"The play is not about Russia, not about Rasputin, but about the nature of government. Political power should be shown to be, by its very nature, corrupt, ruthless, vicious and above all - stupid" Michael Almaz
The performance is a benefit to raise funds for Unfinished Histories, a charity that records the history of the alternative theatre movement, and pays tribute to Michael Almaz and all members of the Brighton Combination, including Noel Greig, Jenny Harris, and the late Elyse Dodgson.
