The story of a woman who takes control over her family and ultimately leads
her relatives to ruin most recently appeared on a Czech stage three decades
Maxim Gorky’s Vassa Zheleznova is a psychological study of a
“transformation of the world”, a situation similar to that which we may
witness today. We seek our personal and social roles in a historical moment,
when “nothing is as it used to be”, learning where our indolence has taken
us and dreading our own responsibility.
The play captures the fate of a specific family, yet it is rather a model of the surrounding world. We are staging the original version of the play, which Gorky was compelled to rewrite upon Stalin’s command, to make it more in line with the stage ideology.
