About Mayakovsky and Stalin

This dramatic character study explores two distantly connected relationships: that of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and his wife Nadya and of Soviet poet Vladimir Mayakovsky and his married lover Lilya Brik.

"VIVID… With a Mednick play, you feel like you’re being invited into the playwright’s mind… The wonderful ensemble cast tackle[s] his muscular language beautifully… let go and let Mednick’s words wash over you.” — KCRW

“INTELLECTUAL DEBATE… an abstract, non-linear, and formalized picture of intriguing events in Russian life.” — Stage Raw

“AMBITIOUS… this extremely intellectual two-acter grapples with highly complex, compelling subject matter and is a must see (and hear) for those interested in revolution and art.” — Hollywood Progressive

Following a critically acclaimed run in Los Angeles, the newest work from legendary poet/playwright and off-off Broadway pioneer Murray Mednick is a dramatic character study incorporating historical footage and photos to explore two distantly connected relationships: that of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and his wife Nadya, and of Soviet poet Vladimir Mayakovsky and his married lover and “muse” Lilya Brik.
