About the Book

Vronsky What were you thinking about with your head stuck to the watering can?
Anna Oh, the same, always the same. I was thinking about my happiness and about my unhappiness.

Russia is changing. Rules have been broken. Chaos is looming. Families are falling apart. Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina is an examination of a country in the midst of extraordinary change. Through the impact of one woman’s decision, it looks at the troubling cost of love on the human soul.

Marina Carr brings a new perspective to Anna Karenina in her stage adaptation of this epic love story, which opened at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in December 2016.
