Alley All New Festival: Describe the Night
In 1920, the Russian writer Isaac Babel wanders the Polish countryside with the Red Cavalry. Seventy years later, a mysterious KGB agent spies on a woman in Dresden and falls in love. In 2010, an aircraft carrying most of the Polish government crashes in the Russian city of Smolensk.
Rajiv Joseph (Gruesome Playground Injuries, The Monster at the Door) returns to the Alley with his epic new play, Describe the Night, which traces the stories of men and women connected by history, myth and conspiracy theories.
