WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Winner of the 13th Street Repertory National Playwriting Contest (1997), TROIKA: God, Tolstoy, and Sophia tells the story of the final days of Leo Tolstoy, one of the world's great novelists, best known for his literary masterpieces War and Peace and Anna Karenina. TROIKA uncovers the personal and private side of the venerable Russian author, giving us a glimpse into the troubled life of one of the 19th century's major literary figures. Socialist ideals and family loyalty clash as an ill and aging Tolstoy renounces his possessions while Sophia, his desperate and angry wife, tries to prevent the loss of her inheritance. Peter Levy's well-researched account of Tolstoy's life, work, and death creates a complex and revealing portrait of a man who Virginia Wolfe once dubbed, "The greatest of all novelists." Written by Peter Levy. Directed by Karen Raphaeli. Limited Engagement: April 27th, 2006 - June 17th, 2006
