Arlekin Players Theatre presents The Stone, by Marius von Mayenburg, which examines the reverberations created by sixty years of German history. In Russian, with simultaneous English translation.

Directed by Arlekin Players Theatre's Artistic Director Igor Golyak (Elliot Norton Award-winning Diary of a Mad Man), the production will run May 17th through June 9th in Studio 368 at Hillside Avenue, Needham, MA. These performances are in Russian with audio-translation in English.

In 1935, a young couple purchases a house from a Jewish family in Dresden, Germany. The play follows the lives of the house's residents, who must grapple with their own identity while experiencing the reverberations created by 60 years of German history. As the house is passed from owner to owner, and generation to generation, the secrets buried in the garden and within the walls reveal themselves.
