Salem to Moscow Summary

Salem to Moscow: An Actor's Odyssey by Brian Cox

Brian Cox is one of the leading actors of his generation. He began his career with Dundee Rep and graduated from there to the Royal Court Theatre, London, the Nottingham Playhouse and New York. More recently, he won immense acclaim for his performance of Titus in Titus Andronicus, directed by Deborah Warner for the RSC, and he is currently playing King Lear at the Royal National Theatre in London and on an international tour. This is a personal history covering 30 years in the British theatre but it begins in the 1980s when Cox, despite considerable success on both sides of the Atlantic, was nevertheless seeking a fresh sense of purpose for his life and work. He embarked on a journey which culminated in directing Arthur Miller's The Crucible at the Moscow Art Theatre school, then in the throes of Gorbachev's thaw, and the setting up of the International Foundation for Training in the Arts. This is the story of that undertaking. Set against the background of perestroika, Salem to Moscow is an account of the many journeys an actor makes across different cultures and through changing environments. Brian Cox brings together an account of his career with a compelling narrative of working within Moscow's most hallowed theatre to make an acutely perceptive story of private and public glasnost.
