  • Overview
    A dramatisation of the acclaimed and enchanting novel, Olesia, by Alexander Kuprin. It is a story of an outstanding young woman whose love and life are destroyed by the unforgiving, ignorant and superstitious mentality of the people around her. Deeply routed in Slavonic mythology, Olesia raises questions surrounding a woman's fate, her relationship with authority and the right of an individual to be who they truly are. Sadly, as Kuprin tells us, those who dare to be themselves are not only victims of the state, but more so of their fellow human beings.
