Dramatization of Tolstoy’s War and Peace at the Prague German Language Theatre Festival

Dramatization of Tolstoy’s War and Peace

I never new there was a theatre version of War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy before, but I just came across an announcement about the Prague German Language Theatre Festival – and apparently there is – though it’s in German. I wonder if anyone would do an English version. Somehow I can’t quite see it coming to the West End of London – they’d have to do a musical version of it for that to happen!

With 12 actors playing 80 roles it does sound like they must have managed to capture quite a lot of the novel.

Although I have read War and Peace a few times, I have never seen any of the film versions. I think compared to some other great big books, I’m thinking Lord of the Rings here, War and Peace may be even harder to convey in dramatic form.
