By Alexander Ostrovsky (“the Russian Moliere”)
A STAGED READING
A greedy merchant, Bolshov, invents a scheme to finance his lavish lifestyle and to satisfy his rapacious husband- hunting daughter by declaring a fraudulent bankruptcy. When Bolshov’s devious accomplice runs off with his assets and his daughter, he descends into professional and psychological ruin and is jailed. Upon his release, Bolshov, a new man ready to walk the straight and narrow, finds that his selfish and cantankerous family has not changed one bit.
Phoenix Theatre Ensemble continues its season based on the theme of Greed with this laugh-filled, sadly relevant, and very funny comedy. Audience Q&A following the performance.
