A comedy, set in Russia in 1879, about Tolstoy’s conversion from an aristocrat-hedonist-artist into a peasant-ascetic-saint, and the price his family has to pay for his goodness.


A Terrible Saint sparkles and shines. It’s not only about literature, it’s a real piece of literature in and of itself. Artfully done, with intelligent characters, it provides one of those delicious evenings when you forget the world outside the theatre. I loved it.”
