In On Naked Soil, Schull plays Akhmatova, the famed Russian poet, in two time frames and in the company of two other women: her contemporary Nadezhda Mandelstam, the widow of the poet Osip Mandelstam, and Lydia Chukovskaya, a young writer who kept a journal of her meetings with Akhmatova in the late 1930s.
Schull’s stage credits include the Broadway productions of 45 Seconds from Broadway, Golda, and Herzl. Her recent film credits include United 93 and Little Children. She is well-known to TV audiences as Fay in the long-running NBC series Wings.
