Performers to include
From Russia, For Love brings together theatre companies and performers from the UK and abroad to present an evening of Russia's finest love scenes all performed with same-sex couples; an evening of secret assignations, deserted hallways, snatched whispers over the samovar, the ache of a love unspoken, and the ecstasy of finally making your declaration, against the odds.
Plays, short stories, novels, poetry…some of the greatest work about love has been written by Russian authors. Our contributors will be creative, bold and adventurous – and surprising! There will be plenty of live music and a party atmosphere.

“In June 2013 Russia's parliament held its final reading of a bill which outlaws the ‘propaganda of homosexuality’. Sadly, support for the bill was overwhelming and on 1 July the bill was signed into law. Activists have an uphill struggle ahead as they find ways to both work around the law and challenge its existence. Stonewall will continue to work with activists and the Foreign Office to strategise and campaign for equality there.” – Stonewall UK
