Genre: Drama
by Maxim Gorky, directed by Donald Brenner, Translation by Tania Alexander and Tim Suter

This is the first English translation of Gorky's 1909 version of this vivid portrait of the dissolution of Russian bourgeois society after years of materialism, unchecked ambition and greed.

Before Alexis Carrington ruled over "Dynasty" there was VASSA ZHELEZNOVA, an unscrupulous matriarch with an iron will. After the death of her husband, Vassa ruthlessly tries to keep her self-indulgent children and a high-society brother-in-law from harming the family business. But will her family be destroyed by the very bourgeois values that she seeks to preserve?
