'ANNA' a play by Badac Theatre Company
Tuesday, October 8, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM (BST)
To mark the anniversary of Anna Politkovskaya's murder on the 7th of October, RAW in WAR and BADAC Theatre Company will be staging a special production of 'Anna', a play by Badac theatre company about the life and work of Anna Politkovskaya.
Set in and around a lift, the location of her murder, the production will focus on Anna's exposure of the human rights abuses that were committed during the second Russian/Chechan war, the reaction of the Russian government to those abuses and the public response to the events, both in Chechnya and Russia, that Anna reported on. Included will be her highlighting of the plight of 'The Disappeared' within Chechnya, the Moscow theatre siege and its aftermath and the testimony of the victims that she wrote so passionately about.
It will aim to be an intense study of one woman's struggle to highlight, and bring to the attention of the world, the plight of the forgotten victims of war and persecution.
The evening will conclude with an audience Q&A with the Badac cast and director of 'Anna', as well as Mariana Katzarova, founder of RAW in WAR, to discuss the play and Anna's work.
Please join us for an opportunity to celebrate the life and work of Anna Politkovskaya on the anniversary of her murder.
Please join us at 7pm for drinks at the cash only bar, before the performance commences at 8pm.
