Tales of Tolstoy

After writing War & Peace, Leo Tolstoy had what he called a “spiritual awaking” that radicalized his life. He became the grandfather of Nonviolent Resistance by trying to live the teachings of Christ without compromise. Gandi and Martin Luther King were profoundly influenced by his ideas. His brilliant short stories are witty and profoundly simple portraits of grouchy saints and ordinary sinners, struggling to live good lives in a fallen world. Bruce Kuhn plays this difficult genius in a 90 minute solo performance that includes Tolstoy’s masterpieces, “God Sees, but Waits,” and “What Men Live By,” which Irish writer James Joyce called, “The best short story ever written.”
