U.S. PREMIERE

I NEVER WRITE COMMENTARY, OR SPECULATION, OR OPINIONS.

I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED–AND I CONTINUE TO BELIEVE– THAT IT IS NOT UP TO US TO MAKE JUDGEMENTS.

I AM A JOURNALIST, NOT A COURT OF LAW OR A MAGISTRATE.

I LIMIT MYSELF TO REPORTING THE FACTS.

THE FACTS: AS THEY STAND, AS THEY ARE. IT SEEMS LIKE THE EASIEST THING, BUT HERE IT’S THE MOST DIFFICULT.

AND IT EXACTS THE HIGHEST PRICE. 

A riveting theatrical portrait of the journalist and activist Anna Politkovskaya, this powerful play, by one of Italy’s most celebrated writers, takes us behind the headlines she generated while exposing details of Russia’s war in Chechnya.

Politkovskaya was assassinated in her Moscow apartment building in 2006. As journalists continue to put their lives on the line around the world, and efforts to undermine a free press escalate here in the U.S., her dispatches speak directly to us today.

Stefano Massini just made headlines—from The New York TimesVarietyThe Guardianand othersfor the National Theatre’s new production of his The Lehman Trilogy, directed by Sam Mendes. In a Critic’s Pick review for The New York Times, Ben Brantley praises The Lehman Trilogy for its “exceptional concentration of narrative simplicity and depth, in which minimal resources seem to expand into unlimited riches.” The Guardian has awarded the production five stars and called it “astonishing.” With PlayCo’s upcoming production of Massini’s Intractable Woman, American audiences will have their first opportunity to see his work staged in the U.S.
