Peter Kleinert (Berlin's Schaubuhne Theatre) directs the Irondale ensemble in a production of Bertolt Brecht's master-work Saint Joan of the Stockyards. Irondale will present this epic tale of romance between a meatpacking tycoon and a Salvation Army worker set amidst the milieu of money, high-rolling millionaires, and corporate greed.
"I want Irondale's St. Joan to come right out of Brooklyn," says director Peter Kleinert. Originally set in 1920's Chicago, Brecht's drama focuses the driving issues of the pursuit of justice in a system driven by profit, and the individual in a fight for what is good and against society. Performed at Irondale for the first time since 1993, an ensemble of actors presents this non-Aristotelian drama laced with humor and songs as part of its epic dramturgical structure.

The two great artists, who rose up from serfdom and slavery, could not speak to each other directly but in one historical moment, found a common language in art and song. Their meetings were documented in the diary of Count Tolstoy's 15 year old daughter, Katya (Ekaterina Tolstoy Yunge).
