Ostrovsky: Four Plays

Alexander Ostrovsky

Translated by Stephen Mulrine
PaperBack (13 May 1997)

Includes three comedies - Too Clever by Half, Crazy Money, Innocent as Charged - and a tragedy The Storm from the father of Russian drama.

Ostrovsky (1823-86) paved the way for twentieth-century stage realism in Russia. These plays are populated by characters that reveal Ostrovsky’s talent for well-turned idiomatic phrases and his acute observation of behaviour and conditioning.
