Faithful Ruslan - The Story of a Guard Dog trailer

Posted on 14 August 2017

This September we will be presenting the world-premier of Faithful Ruslan – The Story of a Guard Dog on our B2 Stage to mark the centenary year of the Russian Revolution, as well as celebrating the 10th anniversary of our wonderful B2 auditorium.

Adapted for the stage by director Helena Kaut-Howson, this stunning new drama tells the story through the eyes of an innocent dog. Helena, alongside Movement Direcor Marcello Magni, reveals in our brand-new trailer the beauty, sadness and incredibly affecting nature of this powerful story.

“It’s a beautiful, beautiful simple story that everybody can connect with. It’s sad but it’s also incredibly funny, and very, very close to what life feels like”

1953, Josef Stalin is dead, and the inhabitants of prison camps across Russia are liberated. Ruslan is a beautiful, proud dog, bred solely to serve as a guard in these camps, but when he’s abandoned in a world without the clear structure and organisation he’s always known, how can he possibly adjust?

Faithful Ruslan – The Story of a Guard Dog takes to the B2 stage between Sat 2 – Sat 16 Sept and tickets are available now, priced from £13.50. Book now by calling the theatre’s friendly box office team on 024 7655 3055 or book online for even cheaper tickets at where no booking fees apply.
