Play

The Russian Lesson is a three-minute scene excerpted from a staged reading of a play I wrote. It was performed at Performance Works Northwest by actors Michael Rohd (as Stepan) and Carolyn de Lorenzo (as Sophie). Nancy Wilson reads stage directions and Ted Schultz plays the father. The scene takes place in Crasukis, Russia in 1910, moments before Sophie has to abandon her beloved and forbidden Russian tutor for the promise of America.
