An ECT World Premier Production
In partnership with The Wende Museum

A play by Julio Vera
Directed by Cassandra Ambe

Before he became the assassin of the 20th century, Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the Soviet Union, where he was called Alik and married Marina, a young Russian woman searching for love. Drawing from years of research, playwright Julio Vera has dramatized a pivotal time in Oswalds life, when his new wife begins to realize the depths of his darkness. In 1962, Oswald decides to return to the US, forcing Marina to make the decision of her life.

Elysium Conservatory Theatre brings to life this intimate drama in the shadows of Cold War artifacts currently on display in the Wende Museum galleries. This stunning setting provides an added dimension to the premiere of this new work.

"The way it weaves up and back in time and place is truly masterful These are fascinating characters who are in some ways dreadful, in others hopeful, in all ways human," says Richard Walter, chair of the UCLA Screenwriting Program.
