A Protegee of the Mistress, by Alexander Ostrovsky - a Staged Reading

January 15, 2018
8:00 pm
Live Oak Theater

In conjunction with our main stage production of An Enemy of the People and in collaboration with TheatreFirst's T1 Presents Performance Series Actors Ensemble is proud to organize a staged reading series featuring important, yet rarely produced, works by Henrik Ibsen, and in addition a production of a play by Ibsen's contemporary, the founder of modern Russian theatre and the predecessor of Chekhov, Alexander Ostrovsky. All performances are on Monday nights between January 8th and January 29th, begin at 8 p.m. and are Pay-What-You-Can. A Protegee of the Mistress is a play from the middle period of Alexander Ostrovsky, the playwright most responsible for creating Russian theatrical tradition, and Checkhov's direct antecedent, though they were fated never to meet. The play concerns a rich noblewoman in the Russian countryside who is in the habit of choosing and promoting favorites, in this case with disastrous consequences for the young girl for which the noblewoman has (in all virtue within her mind) conceived a perfect match.
