Murder of Rasputin: A Staged Reading (Closed)

Course Description:

In an exclusive reading for OLLI, playwright Carol Marquart tells the story of the murder of Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin on December 17, 1916, a gruesome act that marked the beginning of the end for Tsarist Russia. The mysterious Rasputin was many things to many people. To his daughter, Maria, he was a holy but imperfect man. To his assassin, Prince Yusupov, he was an imposter and the Antichrist who crawled out of the dark ages. To the Tsarina Alexandra, he was her savior and an envoy from God. Join us for this very special event.
