    i read books about women who nurse men back to life and i want to be moving about the sick room like a saint.
    i want to be the hero who stands up in parliament and makes a momentous speech
    i want to be lady mary who rides like the wind and shocks everyone with her nerve
    they know what they want from life and they make sure they get it
    why cant my story be like that?

    Anna Karenina is beautiful and admired but empty – until a chance meeting throws her into emotional turmoil and a scandalous affair. Contrasting with this tale of destructive love is the story of Levin, an idealistic man striving to find meaning in life – and a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself.

    Helen Edmundson's celebrated and 'exemplary' (The Times) adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's enduring classic is a vibrant and deeply moving meditation on the nature of love. Staged in the Fitzpatrick Hall, Queen's College, this stripped back production interrogates the core themes of the novel, updating them for a modern audience.
