ReDiscovery Reading:
A Family Affair

In the Lansburgh Theatre


A Family Affair
By Alexander Ostrovsky, Adapted by Nick Dear
Directed by Alan Paul

Nick Dear (NT Live’s Frankenstein) pens this uproarious adaptation of Alexander Ostrovsky’s first and most controversial play.When Bolshov, the volatile family patriarch, tries to evade his creditors through a criminal conspiracy, he ends up trusting the last person he should. Come see the play about which Tsar Nicholas I said was “Printed in vain. Acting is forbidden,” and the censor wrote: “All the characters are first class villains, the dialogue is filthy, the entire play is an insult to the Russian merchant class.”
