Ricochet community – excited to be posting for the first time. Writing to tell you all about a project I’ve been working on recently. I’m putting on a staged reading of my first play, Lev of Leningrad, to raise funds for Ukrainian relief. If you’re in the Philadelphia area and want to see the show you can find tickets here.
Lev is a comedy-drama about (my close friends) Lev and Marina Furman, prominent Jewish refusniks in Leningrad in the 1980s. The Furmans were denied the right to emigrate from the former Soviet Union, which at the time included Kyiv where Marina was born. Last year, the play received a staged reading at the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, PA, as a part of The Fulton’s inaugural ‘Stories of Diversity’ festival.
