The Rasputin Show

On Monday, December 10th, I’m performing in THE RASPUTIN SHOW: an inter-generational cast including veterans of the alternative theatre movement and young performers, playing (at least) a cabaret performer, a posh woman and a government minister.

Unfinished Histories present The Rasputin Show  by Michael Almaz: history as farce, fast-moving and topical.

A staged reading of an experimental piece from 1968, written by Michael Almaz, originally created by the Brighton Combination arts lab.
“The play is not about Russia, not about Rasputin, but about the nature of government. Political power should be shown to be, by its very nature, corrupt, ruthless, vicious and above all – stupid” Michael Almaz

“I thought the Rasputin Show was tremendous and it helped to cement my resolve to act. I dropped out of University not long afterwards and joined the Combination on a full time basis.” Jim Carter (Downton Abbey)

The performance is a benefit to raise funds for Unfinished Histories, a charity that records the history of the alternative theatre movement, and pays tribute to Michael Almaz and all members of the Brighton Combination, including Noel Greig, Jenny Harris, and the late Elyse Dodgson.
