Like a whirling mazurka, danced in a sumptuous Czarist ballroom, Emma Lucia Hands' adaptation of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina spins us through the ups and downs of this heady romance.
 
Set amidst the decadence and social hypocrisies of 19th century Russian high society, the production explores the devastating pressures on a young woman who discovers an intense intimacy with the handsome Count Vronsky. 
 
It’s a love that she cannot live without. 
 
It’s a love that society views with total disapproval.
 
What choice can Anna make?
 
At the same time, Konstantin Levin, rejected in love by Kitty, retreats from the brittle constraints of St Petersburg society to his country estate where the seasons dictate and a man may connect with the earth by feeling the soil under his fingernails.
 
Societal control and industrial progress are as relentless, and ruthless, as the screeching approach of a steam locomotive

I felt very privileged to accept a place at Drama Studio London. All the staff run a thorough and exceptional training. What is unique is the quality of the training. We had the opportunity to work with the most respected names in theatre and tv/film from the very beginning. I would never have developed as an actor if it wasn’t for the honesty, momentum and support at DSL.
