Pushkin's Half Hour

Written and performed by John Agard
Directed by Mark C. Hewitt

Music arranged and performed by Sophia Poznansky
with additional songs in Russian performed by Pam Hewitt

A whimsical whirlwind homage to mixed race Russian poet, Pushkin, in which
John Agard transforms Pushkin's famous verse novel, Eugene Onegin, into a contemporary parlour production in which he plays all the parts. Not just Pushkin and his alter-ego Onegin, but love interest Tatyana and the old nursemaid Filipevna! With live incidental music by Sophia Poznansky (accordion) & cabaret chanteuse Pam Hewitt (voice).
