Premiere of Olivia Olsen's play about Anna Akhmatova, Stray Dogs, at the Park Theatre, London

At the centre of Olivia Olsen's new play, Stray Dogs, is a key moment in the life of the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova - the pilgrimage made to her door by Isaiah Berlin in the winter of 1945. The play depicts the momentous consequences of this visit, dramatizing 'the story of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th century, as she must choose between her duty to her son, her country, her art and herself'.

Stray Dogs premieres at the Park Theatre, Clifton Terrace, Finsbury Park, London N4 3JP, on 15 November: find out more.
