'I must have lost my mind. It was like an eclipse... or rather, as if we had both suffered some kind of sunstroke.'
A blisteringly hot Russian summer: a Muscovite banker meets a solitary married woman on the Russian Riviera; a dashing lieutenant on board a holiday steamer down the Volga has a chance encounter with a beautiful young woman. In the intoxicating heat, passions burn high and their lives are changed forever.
Two of the great masters of Russian literature, Anton Chekhov and Ivan Bunin, explore the bittersweet nature of love outside marriage, its romantic idealism and the painful realisation of irreversible loss.
Chekhov's The Lady with the Dog and Bunin's Sunstroke are dynamically adapted for the stage for the first time by Belka Productions.
