Well, what to say about the stage adaptation of Vasily Grossman’s Life and Fate. It goes for nearly three and a half hours and is in Russian with subtitles projected onto a little screen above the stage. On paper it sounds like a rough night at the theatre, and true it does take a sizable amount of patience and immense concentration to get through it, but I’m proud to say I did get through it, I MOSTLY understood what was going on and I enjoyed it a lot!
