Fyodor Dostoevsky's short tale Nameless Nobody, is a beautifully scripted saga of one girl's relationships with the men who were important to her in her childhood and later teens.
The blank canvas of the bare New End stage was the back-drop for the waif-like Netochka Nezvanova's musings brilliantly brought to life by the fragile butterfly figure of Vera Filatova.
Middle class Netochka is brought up by her mother, after the death of her father, until that is her parent attracts the attention of a penniless heavy drinking violist out to find himself a rich widow.

Engagingly succinct in the portrayal of the young girl, Filatova's dialogue with her audience was interspersed with a stunningly moving musical score, making this one-woman show a real joy to watch from start to finish.
Alexander Markov's direction, coupled with Vera Filatova's mesmerising sharp performance delivered a wonderfully gentle portrait of one young girl's desires. Not to be missed. - DALE MAITLAND CARTWRIGHT
