Great theatre directors such as Meyerhold and Stanislavski have desired to stage this bitter comedy, but Stalin himself has banned the play. The follow up? The author, an outstanding playwright, was deported to Siberia and died anonymously. After his death, "The Suicide" has brought Erdman international recognition. A play written with insane courage, in the midst of a brutal totalitarian regime, a desperate cry for the right to whisper. A performance of shocking and painful modernity, about the crisis of a man lost in the waves of a society in crisis.
