Nelson Fringe Festival: Love at Times

Saturday 16th-Saturday 23rd March 2024

This is a film of two short stage plays.

Stories of Love at Times of War – a musical with songs of ABBA, Garbage and Okean Elzy, lots of guns and love stories.

Story 1: Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Two fighters from Kyiv Territorial Defence discuss their love relationships.

Story 2: Katie & Frank: a regular family quarrel of "you never listen to me" with one difference – she's got a gun in her purse...

ProEnglish Theatre is an independent English-speaking Theatre in Kyiv, Ukraine. Their repertoire consists of performances in English by mostly American and British playwrights. ProEnglish Theatre tours Ukraine and Europe, taking part in various festivals in Ukraine and abroad.

From the start of the invasion, ProEnglish Theatre transformed into ArtShelter, where they hosted a bombshelter for residents of nearby buildings, continuing to create art. Since then, ProEnglish theatre has travelled to Prague Fringe, RVK Fringe, Stockholm Fringe and Gothenburg Fringe.
