Evgeny Titov

Evgeny Titov was born in Kazakhstan, in the Soviet Union in 1980. He trained as an actor at the Theatre Academy in St. Petersburg and spent several years working as an actor in Russia before he began a course as a director at the Max Reinhardt Seminar in Vienna. He created his first productions together with acting students at the Seminar, including Copi’s «Viper’s Nest», which was seen as a guest production at the Vienna Burgtheater, and Gogol’s «Marriage», invited to the Körber Studio für Junge Regie at the Thalia Theater Hamburg in 2016. In 2016 he also directed the world premiere of Martin Heckmanns’s «My Heart is Pure» at Staatsschauspiel Dresden. In the 2017/18 season he then directed «Spring Awakening» by Frank Wedekind and «Assassins» by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman for Landestheater Linz. That same season, his highly acclaimed production of Arthur Miller’s «The Crucible» premiered at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus. This was followed by Molière’s «The Imaginary Invalid» at the Hessiches Staatstheater Wiesbaden (2018), Bulgakov’s «Heart of a Dog» at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus (2019), Maxim Gorky’s «Summer Guests» at the Salzburg Festival (2019) and «Vassa Zheleznova» at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden (2020).



Ephraim Cabot has built his farm in New England up out of nothing, through hard work and the sweat of his brow and he keeps his three sons in line with Puritan discipline. However, instead of handing on the fruits of their collective toil to the next generation, he introduces the young Abbie to them as his bride, thereby unleashing a tragedy of ancient dimensions. While the elder brothers entirely abandon any hope of inheriting from their father and follow the call of gold to California, a fateful triangle develops between his youngest son   Eben, his father and his step-mother – and Abbie too raises a claim to the farm that Eben is willing to defend by any means.
