  • Theater for the New City 155 1st Avenue New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

by Maxim Gorky

New translation by Leo Grinberg and Jenny Sterlin

 At the beginnings of the revolution in Russia in 1902, the Bessemenov family grapples with shifting socio-economic environments, changing gender politics, and generational identity. Shockingly relevant and culturally enlightening, this new adaptation investigates how a societal rift can affect traditional values and challenges perceptions of duty, morality, and status that are as relevant today as they were one hundred years ago.
