FILM after the science fiction novel “WE” by Yevgeny Zamyatin

Script in development.

In a glass-enclosed city of absolute straight lines, ruled over by the all-powerful “Benefactor”, the citizens of the totalitarian society of OneState live out lives devoid of passion and creativity, until D-503, a mathematician who dreams in numbers, makes a discovery: he has an individual soul.

“We” is hailed as the first dystopian novel, Zamyatin’s powerfully inventive vision has influenced writers from George Orwell to Ayn Rand. It was the forerunner of works such as George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”.

Completed in 1921, “We” was only published in the U.S.S.R in 1988, at the start of Gorbachev’s era.

About

Written by the ingenious Nikolay Kolyada, one of the most popular Perestroika’s author and Stanislavsky Prize laureate. Kolyada is named as one of the “fathers” of Russia’s contemporary theatre movement. His plays are a must-see for any person interested in theatre and Russian culture.

Irina, a middle-aged single woman lives in the imaginary world, surrounded by vulgar uneducated neighbours she makes herself believe that she has roots in the upper class of America, that soon her family will find her and she will sail towards her dreams on board the steamboat.

Irina deeply resonates with Blanche DuBois of Tennessee Williams’s “A Streetcar Named Desire”. Unpredictable plot, sparkling humour and heartbreaking reality, the characters go through a roller-coaster of emotions. What is the difference between lies and living in the imaginary world? Those pertinent questions have to be answered by our characters and the audience.

About

Alexander Vampilov (19 August 1937 – 17 August 1972) was a Soviet playwright who is often called “Chekhov of the modern times”. His best known works are Last Summer in Chulimsk, Duck Hunting, Elder Son and Farewell in June. Many of his plays have been filmed and televised in Russia. Vampilov emerged as one of the principal figures in the generation of dramatists who came to prominence following the death of Stalin. Vampilov made his debut as a playwright with the publication of The House with a View to the Field in the November(1964) issue of Theatre.

 The House with a View is based on the original Vampilov’s play (translation and adaptation by Natasha Radski)

This is a comedy about two people of a different class desperately trying to understand each other. Vladimir Tretyakov has been working in a remote Soviet village as a geography teacher for three years. On the last day of his assignment, he pops in to say goodbye to Lidia Astafieva, who is the head of the local milk farm and an activist. He sees the view from her window, which he hadn’t noticed before. Will they find something in common despite their class and social differences?

About

Georges Feydeau (1862 – 1921) was a French playwright of the era known as ‘la Belle Epoque’, when new inventions made life easier at all social levels. The cultural scene thrived, cabaret, cancan, and the cinema were born. Feydeau’s matchless perception of the frailty of fin de siècle respectability and his superb economy in writing reveals his skill as not simply a light entertainer but a great writer to be compared with dramatists such as Ibsen or Chekhov. He is now recognised as one of the great French playwrights of his era. His plays are seen today as precursors to Surrealist and Dadaist theatre, and the Theatre of Absurd. Feydeau’s plays concentrate on the appetites and follies of the average human being caught in the net devised by his or or her own foolishness. The dramatist is not interested in what people should be, or even, aspire to be, but rather with what they almost inevitably, and amusingly, are.

Three hilarious one act plays examining the complex mix of sex, love and conflict in human relationship.

 My Wife’s Dead Mother: Calling your mother-in-law a camel! This play is a master class in arguing with your other half!

Through the Open Window: A lawyer receives a visit from his hot Brazilian neighbour asking for an unusual service.

Love and the Piano: When a social climber from the suburbs goes to the city and meets a young and wealthy piano student, the notes start to be played out of tune.

Press

“The cast of four – Natasha Radski, Andrew Allen, Adam Foster and Mellony Carr – cope gamely with Feydeau’s situations… Mauro Tinti has created some imaginative designs”. Michael Darvell, “What’s on in London”.

“… Four actors deliver nine roles with a delicate touch. They deftly create a world in which human interaction is heartless and surreal, painful to its inhabitants and comic to us.” Barbara Lewis, “The Stage”.

“These tales of strained marriages and cockeyed courtships are pure farce.. The humour comes from the plot twists, and from the characters caught up in situations they think they can control but do not… Andrew Allen is a convincingly oafish husband, and Adam Foster charming as a provincial upstart…” Jonathan Gibbs, “Time Out”.

Message from the artistic director

Natasha RADSKI

Hello! Thank you for the interest in Art Planet Productions! My name is Natasha, I am the artistic director of the company. Here is briefly about my work and Art Planet.

I’ve been working as a professional actor and voice over for 18 years, participating in some wonderful projects, such as “Chernobyl” HBO, “Dracula” BBC and many more. (Here is my full filmography). I also have a degree in linguistics and currently studying script writing for the television and film.

I also have been working as an artistic director producing theatre work, which I am proud of. I’ve been an artistic director of 5 play: “My Wife’s Dead Mother”, “Through the Window”, “Love and the Piano” after Georges Feydeau at Greenwich Playhouse, “House With a View” after Alexander Vampilov at Drayton Arms and Pushkin House, “The Steamboat as a Gift” after Nikolai Kolyada at the Tabernacle Theatre. Work in the theatre requires colossal efforts, every project has been a completely new unexpected artistic experience. I did my best to involve best artistic and technical professionals to produce quality work. I am proud to say that all collaborators have been paid for their work, which is very rare in the small scale theatre.

Currently I am reforming the company into audio and visual production with the same aim of promoting culture and art.

Several projects are currently in development and I hope to bring some new and exciting stuff very soon!
