Dziady/ Forefathers' Eve Tickets London - at Almeida Theatre | Thespie

This semi-staged reading will take place at the Almeida, as part of Six Artists in Search of a Play. Polish political prisoner Gustav finds himself incarcerated for nationalistic activities against Tsar Alexander I. Through Part III of Dziady/Forefathers’ Eve, he is re-Christened as Konrad and transformed from the maudlin, self-absorbed lover, to the impassioned revolutionary, striving to bring his nation together and free his people from oppression. Dziady/Forefathers’ Eve is the best-known work of Adam Mickiewicz, widely accepted as Poland’s greatest poet. Considered a significant work of European Romanticism, Mickiewicz’s poetic drama is presented on a British stage for the first time.
