The Mandate by Nikolai Erdman. Translated from the Russian, and a German version by Ingebord Gampert, by Peter Tegei, with Mary Wimbush as Nadeshda, Geoffrey Beevers as Pavel, Jane Knowles as Varvara and Sarah Golding as Anastasia.

Nikolai Erdman's first full-length play, The Mandate, a stylised farce and satire, was a great success in 1925, in a production by the great Russian director Meyerhold.

Set in Moscow in the first years after the Revolution, its characters are members of the petty bourgeoisie and the old middle class, trying to survive in the new Soviet society.

Accordion music by Henry Krein. Produced and directed by Richard Wortley.
