Alley Theatre presents Describe the Night
In 1920, the Russian writer Isaac Babel wanders the 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, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) returns to the Alley with his epic new play which traces the stories of seven men and women connected by history, myth and conspiracy theories. Describe the Night was commissioned by the Alley Theatre and was featured as a reading in the 2017 Alley All New Festival.
