The highly acclaimed Black Bread & Cucumber was written by Caroline Blakiston following her unique experience as the first English actor to perform Chekhov in Russia in Russian

She first played the role of Charlotta in The Cherry Orchard in Tagenrog, Chekhov's birthplace in 1991, and the following year at the Moscow Art Theatre

Black Bread & Cucumber was realised from extensive diaries of her time living and working with Russian actors, both before and after the coup of 1991

In 1994 Caroline was presented with the Golden Globe Award in Moscow for her special contribution to Russian Theatre

She has performed Black Bread & Cucumber more than a hundred times around the world

It is not a play, but a true story shared with an audience
