The Kreutzer Sonata - rapturous woman at a piano

by Nancy Harris
based upon the novella by Leo Tolstoy

A Pittsburgh Premiere!
May 30 – June 22, 2013
Henry Heymann Theatre, Directed by Alan Stanford

Meet Pozdynyshev, an enigmatic stranger in a smoky rail car, weaving a tale of love, loss and betrayal. Hear his sensuous wife playing piano while his old friend plays violin, the Kreutzer Sonata between them, powerful and evocative. Was this music the soundtrack to their illicit passion, or has Pozdynyshev made a terrible mistake? Irish playwright Nancy Harris has transformed Tolstoy’s classic novella, inspired by this oft-played sonata, into a theatrical experience you’ll not soon forget.
