Set in Russia over the course of 90 years, this thrilling and epic new play tells the stories of a Russian writer, a KGB agent and a group of Polish politicians. While the three settings and time periods may appear disparate from a quick glance at the synopsis, Joseph shows his mastery of the craft by connecting these stories through a single journal.
