LongingHoping for a pleasant break from his life in Moscow, Kolia visits his oldest friends on their Estate in the country. Upon arrival, the comedy of provincial life unravels around him and he is caught amongst false expectations, missed opportunities and unspoken passions. Adapted by William Boyd, the play is based on two short stories by Anton Chekhov and delves into the familiar and unfamiliar aspects of nineteenth century Russian life. 'Longing' will see Nina Raine return to the Hampstead Theatre following her critically acclaimed transfer to the West End for 'Jumpy' and 'Tribes'.

 

About Hampstead Theatre

The Hampstead Theatre has existed in various forms since 1959, when it opened in a Scout Hall and its opening season in 1959 included two new plays by Harold Pinter, The Room and The Dumb Waiter. In 1962 the company moved to a portacabin in Swiss Cottage where it remained for nearly 40 years. More about Hampstead Theatre
