Intelligent, Ambitious, Great staging

See it if Intelligent play about children in the wake of war--set in the aftermath of the Russian Civil War

Don't see it if Some stage combat and violence involved.

Absorbing, Great acting, Epic, Great writing, Masterful

See it if you can handle somewhat slow pacing and hard-hitting plot, characters, and conflicts.

Don't see it if you want to see something light or have no knowledge of Russian history. Read more

"These actors are most certainly no longer children, and yet their physicality and vocal choices are very successful in creating the environment of a dangerous children’s battleground...There are a few moments in which the writing and direction can use tightening: monologues roll on too long, motivation is sometimes unclear, and individual relationships have the tendency to be a little muddy. However, the story moves in ways that are unexpected."
