Description - Summerfolk by Maxim Gorky

Written in 1904, this play depicts a society after the disintegration of feudalism with a new class of businessmen, intellectuals and professionals. Gorky's mighty naturalistic masterpiece shows a diverse group of Russians meeting, as they do every year, at their summer holiday retreat. Some are frightened at the prospect of change, some are angry and some yearn for a new life. As they question the value of their work, their art and leisure, they're shocked by the responses their disputes reveal. Relationships break under the strain and scandals of business and infidelity are laid bare.
