Olivia Olsen’s Stray Dogs will hold its world premiere at Park Theatre in London. The play follows Russian poet Anna Akhmatova after her husband’s death in Stalin’s purges. When her son is sent to a gulag, Akhmatova must choose between her family, her art, and her country.

Robin Herford directs the play, in which Olsen herself will star as Anna Akhmatova alongside Ben Porter as Isaiah Berlin and Ian Redford as Joseph Stalin. Harry Johnson provides sound design, with addition creatives to be announced at a later date.
