Music Theatre Wales - CANCELLED

27 February to 27 March 2020

Newport | London | Mold | Aberystwyth | Cardiff


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 17/3/2020 - Following the latest advice from the Government, it is with much regret that the final performance of Denis & Katya at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama is cancelled. Please contact the venue to organise a refund for your ticket and for further information.

Two 15-year-olds in love who lived every moment, including their last, online.

Composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman − the duo behind the award-winning 4.48 Psychosis – examine the real-life tragedy of Russian runaways Denis Muravyov and Katya Vlasova. Dubbed a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, they broadcast their forbidden final days together on social media. And rightly or wrongly, the public clicked, watched and responded.

Splicing verbatim text, video, music and theatre, Denis & Katya explores how stories are shaped and shared in our age of trolls, conspiracy theories, fake news, and 24/7 digital connection.
