A comedy by ALEXANDER OSTROVSKY translated and adapted by ALAN BROWN and KYRA DIETZ with Patience Collier and David Buck
The play takes place on the estate of Raissa Pavlovna, some miles from the district town.
In his comedy of Russian country life, Alexander Ostrov sky (1823-1886) casts an amused, if cynical, eye on the hypocrisies and pretensions of rural society in the 1870s - and moralises, albeit indirectly, on the unfair advantage that wealth bestows on those who seek to manipulate the lives of their less fortunate friends and relatives.
Produced by ARCHIE CAMPBELL (Patience Collier is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Co)

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
