THE POWER OF DARKNESS by Leo Tolstoy

“THE POWER OF DARKNESS rends the air with greatness.” -The Spectator, 1984 This play was written in 1886 but was banned in Russia where it was not produced until 1895—after Tolstoy satisfied the censor and agreed to provide an alternative for the play’s most powerful and horrific scene. The play is virtually unknown in this country; its first New York production was in Yiddish (in 1904). It was another 16 years before the fledgling Theater Guild finally presented the play in English. The last time THE POWER OF DARKNESS was seen in New York was in 1959 when Brooks Atkinson called the play “unforgettable…a devastating chronicle of corruption and penitence on a peasant farm in the 1880’s.” Mint Theater Company is the proud recipient of a $100,000 grant from the Tony Randall Theatrical Fund to support the production of this forgotten play by one of the world’s greatest writers.

Mint was chosen from among 45 candidates by a selection d entl of Hankin an committee including Jed Bernstein, Steve Buscemi, rd.
