The Stalin Trilogy

David Pinner

PaperBack (10 Aug 2004)

Includes the plays Lenin in Love, The Teddy Bears' Picnic and The Potsdam Quartet

Three gripping political plays: Lenin in Love takes up the alleged sexual troika and sadistic inclinations of one of the foremost political leaders of the 20th century.
The Teddy Bears' Picnic is an ironic comedy which shows Stalin playing relaxed host and bon viveur in his country retreat. His Politburo guests are somewhat less relaxed. The Potsdam Quartet features four embittered musicians hired to entertain Stalin, Truman, Atlee and Churchill as they ‘divide up the world'.
