Join us on the hilarious rollercoaster that is Marriage. Gogol’s timeless and unpredictable comedy is as sparkling and accessible as it ever was.

Summer’s coming in St Petersburg and blushing bride-to-be, Agafya, has a string of suitors lined up for her by the local matchmaker – but how can she decide which one to pick? Ivan wants to get married – but how long will he take to pop the question once he’s made up his mind?

Ivan’s best friend, Ilya, driven to distraction by all the dithering, vows to take charge and force his hand – wiping out the competition from the other suitors and making sure the day ends with wedding bells ringing. But will his cunning plan succeed?

Hamish Glen’s production of Laurie Slade’s new version has been commissioned by the Belgrade in its continuing exploration of plays on the theme of Marriage and offers the perfect antidote to the winter blues.
