Lithuanian play based on Gorky's book
A two-act play from Lithuania, The Mother, adapted from Russian author Maxim Gorky's novel of the same title, will make its debut in China at the ongoing Meet in Beijing Arts Festival.
The play tells the story of Vassa Zheleznova, a woman whose alcoholic husband assaults her and does not do enough to care for their son while alive. She works in a factory for years and raises her son but eventually she and her son clash.
"The conflicts between materialism and spirituality, and between sociability and individualism have been presented well in The Mother. We may see it as a Lithuanian story but at the same time it's recognizable in every society," director Kirill Glushajev said.
