Anastasia

by  Marcelle Maurette, Guy Bolton

Full Length Play, Drama  /  8m, 5f

This crowd-pleasing classic was made into a film which featured an Oscar-winning performance by Ingrid Bergman who starred as "Anya", the last surviving daughter of Czar Nicholas II of Russia. Discovered as an amnesiac in a Berlin asylum by former Cossack 'prince' turned-taxi-driver Bounine, Anya is swept into a scheme to exploit the 'heritage' of 10 million pounds being held in trust for any surviving heirs of the Romanoff dynasty. As the conspiracy prospers, Anya is coached to success but for one last test: the Imperial Grand Empress is alive and her acceptance is essential. In a famous 'recognition scene' of breathless suspense, Anya meets her grandmother and must convince the dowager that she is the long-lost Royal Princess Anastasia.
