Gorky Platform


On Thursday 18 April 2013 and 6.00pm, I’m chairing a Platform on Maxim Gorky to coincide with the new National Theatre production of Children of the Sun. I’ll be interviewing Cynthia Marsh, Emeritus Professor  of Russian and Slavonic Studies at the University of Nottingham. We’ll be discussing Gorky’s distinctive approach to writing for theatre, his politics, and the specific circumstances of the writing of Children of the Sun while in prison for his part in the abortive 1905 Revolution.

Tickets available here.
