FEATURES / CONTAINS

Play w/ Music

Bare Stage/Simple Set

A fascinating, biographical portrait of the Soviet playwright and revolutionary set as a musical. Gorky's three "lives" are portrayed by separate actors. One is the innocent youth, the next, the impassioned revolutionary and last, the disillusioned old man, presumed victim of a Stalin purge. All three are on the stage together, talking and arguing with one another. But the play is more than just Gorky's story, it also explains a man, his character, his environment and times.

"Sometimes ironic, but always moving musical." - Time
American Place Theatre, 1975. Directed by Wynn Handman.
