Love Amid Devastation
Written by Russians Mikhail Gindin and Viktor Sinokevitch, The Beast is a stark love story that takes place in a postapocalyptic world. First produced in Russian in 1986, the plays performance was delayed owing to censorship issues. Now the Playground Theatre presents the American premiere of this dark tale about a family in search of a friend while living in fear of a beast. Tonight, Books & Books will host a special Book the Beast event, where you can catch a sneak peek of excerpts from the play -- directed by Oleg Kheyfets, with costume and set design by Margarita Demianova -- and have the opportunity to meet the director and cast. Light snacks will be served. Admission is free, and no one under sixteen will be admitted. For a complete performance schedule of The Beast, visit www.theplaygroundtheatre.com.
Fri., Jan. 20, 7-9 p.m.
