About this show

This first of a series of plays about the Maltinsky family takes place on the Ides of March, 1881. Young Solomon Maltinsky, living under the relative benevolence of Czar Alexander II, is arrested in a round-up of presumed suspects after the Czar is assassinated. In the course of twenty-four hours, the tight-knit Maltinsky family, as well as friends, both Christian and Jew, risk life and reputation for Solomon so he can escape to America.
