What dream would you protect with your life?

Chris Hannan’s new adaptation of Alexander Galin’s Moscow Olympics drama, Stars in the Morning Sky, is a brand new Belgrade Theatre production directed by Hamish Glen.

The Olympic torch bearer approaches Moscow, heralding the start of the 1980 Olympics. But not everyone is allowed to celebrate.

In a bid to show the world a cleaned-up version of the Soviet Union, the prostitutes and other undesirables have been swept out of the city.

On one unforgettable night, there is both brutality and unexpected romance … as the characters discover what is precious to them – and cling to it for dear life.

Running time: approx. 2 hrs including an interval

“Humanity shines as bright as the Olympic flame in Coventry-based writer Chris Hannan’s adaptation of Alexander Galin’s play.” ****

The Coventry Telegraph

“The drama arrives at a moving conclusion.” ***

The Guardian

“The dialogue of Chris Hannan’s Irish-accented adaptation has a robust feel.” ***

The Guardian

“Filled with sarcastic humour, Galin’s play brings to life the communist regime of the 1980’s within the dingy confines of Libby Watson’s inspirational set.” ***

The Stage

“****”

“The Times”

““Director Hamish Glen offers a moving package with earthy language and lots of humour.” ”

The Coventry Telegraph
