About The White Guard

Blackly funny and deeply moving, The White Guard follows a family through the near farcical chaos of the Russian civil war.

In Kiev, the Turbin household is sanctuary to a ragtag, close-knit crowd presided over by the beautiful Lena. As her brothers prepare to fight for the White Guard, friends charge in from the riotous streets amidst an atmosphere of heady chaos, quaffing vodka, keeling over, declaiming, taking baths, playing guitar, falling in love.

But the new regime is poised and in its brutal triumph lies destruction for the Turbins and their world.

NT Associate Howard Davies directs this major new production, featuring a fantastic NT ensemble cast.

'Outstanding... Thrilling, darkly comic and often deeply moving. A superb ensemble in which even the smallest roles come alive.' Daily Telegraph

'A breathtaking production. Howard Davies is our greatest director of Russian drama.' Guardian

 ‘This revival triumphs.' The Times
