The White Guard - Posh - Paris Opera Ballet - Petropolis - James Brown tribute
The White Guard
National Theatre, London, Until 7 July
Against the thunderous backdrop of revolution in Russia, the Turbin household shelters a motley group of exiled aristocrats, hiding from the Reds.
The play promises an orgy of vodka quaffing, guitar plucking, anarchic ensemble action - the last hurrah of a pampered elite that the Bolsheviks are determined to consign to history. And fortunately there's no scarlet pimpernel in sight.
Royal Court Theatre, London, Until 22 May
