OTMA: A Drama
by Kate Moira Ryan
A play focusing on the Ekaterinburg captivity of Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia Nikolaevna. During their arrest, they rehearse Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard.
Imagines the tsar's daughters' perspective on their captivity. Also deals with the "officer's letters" escape plot.
in my opinion:
Conveys the tension in the Ipatiev House very well, including a welcome dose of wry humor. However, some characterizations felt less than 3-dimensional to me. Tatiana in particular seemed somewhat caricatured.
