Lancaster Arts, in partnership with Lancashire County Council Refugee Integration Team, is privileged to welcome UKRLAND, a compelling one-woman theatre production created in response to the war in Ukraine. Featuring eight documentary stories written by modern Ukrainian authors that share the very real, human experiences that so many are facing at the moment in Ukraine.
Directed by Yurii Radionov and performed by Shorena Shoniia, known for her work in film (No Step Back, Secret Love) and theatre (Juliet and Romeo, Lesya Ukrainka Theatre), who skilfully works with each story to reveal the full range of emotions of a woman in an inhuman war: a girl, sister, mother, friend, wife, neighbour, grandmother. Raped, mutilated, killed… but unconquered!
These are stories of strong and loving women who will cross hundreds of roads and lead their children to their land – UKRLAND, where there will be no evil. And there will be a strong spirit, culture and love.
UKRLAND is a compelling theatre production created in response to the war in Ukraine and commissioned by The Lowry, Salford. The work showcases brand-new texts from members of the Ukrainian Playwrights Theatre that share the very real, human experiences that so many are facing at the moment in Ukraine.
