"Astonishing in its scope, its craft, its precision and insight"
Moscow Times

"..a sweeping epic"
The West Australian

It's early 1943. Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia are in a bitter struggle for their very survival. Life and Fate is a sweeping panorama of Soviet Society, an epic tale of a country told through the fate of a single Jewish family, the Shtrum's.

Vasily Grossman's celebrated novel, banned because of the parallels it drew between Nazism and Soviet Communism, is being adapted adapted for the stage for the very first time. From Nazi concentration camps to the Gulags of Siberia and the Soviet nuclear programme, the battle of Stalingrad looms large as the characters work out their destinies in a world torn by ideological tyranny and war.

This critically acclaimed production, winner of the Golden Mask for best play, has toured around the world to great acclaim since 2007 and comes to London for the first time.
