"When Blood Ran Red"

(Today at 2pm and 6pm) — An exclusive look at this play in development:

"When Blood Ran Red" gives an account of the friendships between African-American actor and civil rights activist Paul Robeson and leading Soviet Jews after World War II, during the brutal reign of Josef Stalin. It chronicles the darkest era in the Soviet Union, when former wartime heroes of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee were persecuted as enemies of the state for daring to report on the truth of the Holocaust in the German-occupied East. The driving point of the action deals with the removal of the Russian Yiddish theater and purge of Yiddish and Jewish culture and life in the Stalin era.

Written by Ben Gonshor and directed by Kenneth Ferrone.
