WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Gentle is a world-premiere play based on the short story "A Gentle Woman" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It follows a young immigrant woman, a pawnbroker, and their maid over the course of a short, mysterious marriage. Dostoevsky's brilliant tale of the obsessive power of ego and its ability to push ordinary people to extraordinary measures is modernized as a story of our times. Zeljko Djukic (Uncle Vanya) directs; Natasha Bogojevich contributes original music.
