Print Status: in print
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.
Waiting in Tobolsk: The Children of the Last Tsar
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.
