About This Show

A series of monologues in English and Ukrainian about the war in Ukraine. It has been created by Ukrainians living in the North West. One-woman show featuring eight documentary stories written by modern Ukrainian authors to The Quays Theatre. Directed by Yurii Radionov and performed by Shorena Shoniia, UKRLAND is an honest conversation about the war in Ukraine. Shorena Shoniia, known for her work in film (No Step Back, Secret Love) and theatre (Juliet and Romeo, Lesya Ukrainka Theatre), skilfully works with each story to reveal to the viewer the full range of emotions of a woman in an inhuman war: a girl, sister, mother, friend, wife, neighbour, grandmother. Raped, mutilated, killed… but unconquered! These are stories of strong and loving women who will cross hundreds of roads and lead their children to their land – UKRLAND, where there will be no evil. And there will be a strong spirit, culture and love. Developed with support from The Lowry, UKRLAND is a compelling theatre production created in response to the war in Ukraine. The work showcases brand-new texts from members of the Ukrainian Playwrights Theatre that share the very real, human experiences that so many are facing at the moment in Ukraine.
