by Charlie Wilks - Oct 21, 2019

Maxim Gorky's Vassa Zheleznova is currently playing at the Almeida Theatre, in a new adaptation from Mike Bartlett a?' a playwright of brilliant achievements. The last time Gorky's play had a version of it on was in a lukewarm production at the Southwark Playhouse in 2016. The production here was thrown into the contemporary without much substance to back it up. Bartlett keeps it traditional, putting questions of capitalist corruption at the forefront of the narrative. His version is a black comedy, a jovial piece filled with many zingy one-liners and exciting punchiness.

Next year, Broadway will celebrate 30 years of this incredible life-affirming event.  And so as Bares in London hits a decade of daring to bare, let's take a look back at what makes this show such a firm favourite in the theatre calendar.
