The Anna Karenina Fix: Russian Cabaret Night

Award-winning stand-up comedian Viv Groskop hosts a celebration of Russian literature through music, comedy and spoken word.

Author of the (just released) memoir The Anna Karenina Fix; Life Lessons from Russian Literature, BBC Radio 4 presenter Groskop and friends present a heart-warming, tongue-in-cheek tribute to the Russian greats from Tolstoy's War and Peace to Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita.

Heart-rending folk music from Russian singer-songwriter Daria Kulesh ("haunting and enigmatic" - The Times); a radical take on Soviet Bond villains from musical comedy supremo Laurence Owen ("ridiculously clever" - The Scotsman); and Chekhovian satire from award-winning actor Kerry Shale ("Shale is a genius" - The Daily Telegraph).

Expect riffs on Tolstoy's obsession with women with moustaches (true fact) as you laugh-weep into your vodka.
