About This Show

During a four-month period in 1994, Piotr Fomenko, one of Russia’s most renowned master acting teachers/directors, and his young troupe of actors sat around a large table everyday and read Tolstoy’s War and Peace aloud. Fomenko’s subsequent two-act play adaptation War and Peace, which had its Russian premiere in February 2001, was considered the first successful attempt in the history of Russian theater to stage the novel.

Performed in Russian with simultaneous English translation.
