About this show

An English-speaking troupe drawn from Moscow's Mayakovsky Academic Art Theatre perform The Past is Still Ahead, an endearing, heart-wrenching tale of the life and poetry of Marina Tsvetaeva, one of Russia's most profound poets. Set in her last days in 1941, the play is an unfolding series of reflections on her life and a testament to all who suffer great loss under prejudice and oppressive regimes. The play is not specifically about her poetry, nor is it biographical. Rather it spins off the shards of the poet's shattered, dramatic life as it was destroyed by a tumultuous period in Russia's history.
