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, one of the finest playwrights of this generation, brings a new perspective toAnna Karenina in this version of an epic love story.

Audiences can expect a fantastic, big production – funny, dark, romantic and sad – with an incredible cast bringing it to life.?

Playing ?Anna? and making her debut at the Abbey Theatre is lauded performer Lisa Dwan.? Lisa is best known for her stunning performances of Samuel Beckett’s work.? A host of talent are making their debut at the Abbey Theatre alongside Lisa including Rory Fleck Byrne (Vronsky), Julie Maguire (Kitty), Paul Mallon (Levin) and Margaret McAuliffe (Betsy).? Alexandra Conlon and Barry McKiernan are debuting as understudies and ensemble members and there are eight children sharing the four parts for children in the play.
