by Alexander Pushkin
adapted by Howard Colyer

presented by Ballast Theatre
directed by Scott Le Crass and Sean Turner

Moscow 1598. Ivan the Terrible is dead, as are all his sons, and now with seeming reluctance Boris Godunov wears the crown. But word spreads that Dimitry, the prince thought to be murdered, was not truly slain, but is alive and gathering an army to overthrow Russia’s government.

Is it possible?
This chaos?
These threats?
He must be mad!
But his madness is catching
A madman is roaming Russia like a disease

Boris Godunov is Pushkin’s greatest play – an epic of civil war, lies, deception, rumours and betrayal.

Press for previous productions:

'an absolute gem of just over an hour’s entertainment' London Fringe Theatre Reviews

'Driven by a fantastic script, edited and translated by Howard Colyer, and performed by a superb cast, this show was brilliant…a very Russian, strangely relevant show, performed by some great actors'
