Lower Depths

Down and Out in Nizhny Novgorod

The most famous play by Maxim Gorky, The Lower Depths, was produced by Theatre Machine, in the most appropriate theatre space in Seattle-the old immigration jail, now called theLab@INScape. Used for Kafka’s The Trial, it has a sordid, sinister creepiness about it making it highly suitable for a play about the lumpen-proletariat of pre-Revolutionary Russia.
