The German Bitch
Performed: - 312 West 36th Street, NYC, May 02 - May 18, 2013
Part of the WorkShop Theater Company’s annual spring one-act festival.
A fictional dramatization of a visit by Catherine the Great in January 1775, to the prisoner and rebel Yemelyan Ivanovich Pugachov, pretender of Tsar Peter III, the night before his execution. Based on an episode in A. Pushkin’s The Captain’s Daughter, this play enjoys a what-if between two strong, willful people, at opposite ends of the hierarchical spectrum.
And yes, I did enjoy corseting my performers and shackling them…
Cast: Susan Izatt as Catherine the Great, David Palmer Brown as Pugachov, Kevin Stanfa as the Jailer.
All actors members of AEA.
