LineStorm Playwrights presents a special performance of this wild, absurdist, romantic and historical comedy featuring Valorie Curry (Amazon’s The Tick) and Sam Underwood (AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead). A dead playwright (Valorie Curry) recounts the failure of her most recent, and therefore, final play, about the many-chaptered life of Josef Stalin’s daughter, Svetlana. At the same time, the playwright’s ex-boyfriend and grieving director (Sam Underwood) tries to remount the play, with the help of a cat who claims to be the reincarnation of Vladimir Lenin. Performed by two actors, and taking us from New York to the Afterlife, and on Svetlana’s journey from Russia to India to Princeton to Frank Lloyd Wright’s cult of architects in Wisconsin, and yes, finally to Portland, Oregon, You Ruined My Play or, Svetlana Svetlana begs the question, do we ever break out of our cycles? Or, are we doomed to repeat our relationships and our choices for all eternity?
