arcolatheatre.com

I’ve been meaning to check out this theatre for a while, so finally, I managed to roll around the corner to Dalston Junction for a preview of A Warsaw Melody. This Eastern European drama is fixed firmly in my roots. Belkin productions have had success touring all over America and Europe, finally landing in east London at The Arcola.

The play is romantic as it is funny and in parts, utterly tragic. We follow a couple through the decades from a chance Moscow meeting  to the elegance of Warsaw as it rebuilds itself  from the effects of war – the couple are as torn as the city. Stunning and sympathetic acting on a simple set within the intimate theater setting leaves you feeling melancholy and thoughtful, in a good way.
