The question above – Lenin's famous question, you may remember – refers to the name of a loose collective of leftist Russian poets, artists, philosophers, singers, set designers, critics, writers, etc. who are currently colonising various spaces at the ICA.

"I haven't met a girl yet I couldn't make chuck me," smirks Tom on discovering that his drunken one-night stand with a colleague, Amy, has grown into a full-blown relationship. "I'm like a romantic Gandhi. Passive resistance." So far, so familiar – boy meets girl, boy tries to get rid of girl. But the beauty of this play is that we get to hear both sides of the story. So while Tom has been trying to shake off Amy, Amy has been wondering how long she has to keep it going to get back at her patronising, samba-drumming colleague, Sasha. Meanwhile, both Tom and Amy are still hankering after their first, rose-tinted, tattoo-inducing brushes with love.

When Philip Glass’s ‘Satyagraha’ got its ENO staging three years ago, critical reactions were mixed.
