Bolsheviki by David Fennario

Read this play last night – brilliant, classic Fennario. Having grown up in the Verdun/Point area his characters tend to send shivers down my spine in their uncanny familiarity and purely old school working class worldviews.

It includes a lot of stuff about World War 1 that your standard history texts have chosen to omit – the actual stories of the men who spent years living in the trenches of a terrifying neverending war against people who don’t appear to want to die any more than you do.

It’s a one actor show and, I guess, extremely challenging to perform, but if you ever get a chance to catch a performance, run to get the tickets!!
