OTMA: A Drama

description:

A play focusing on the Ekaterinburg captivity of Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia Nikolaevna. During their arrest, they rehearse Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard.

unique features:

Imagines the tsar's daughters' perspective on their captivity. Also deals with the "officer's letters" escape plot.

similar to:

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.
