The Faction presents Vassa Zheleznova by Maxim Gorky in a new version by Emily Juniper. Directed by Rachel Valentine Smith
Vassa is the head of the business, head of the family, a self-made millionaire. Exactly how far will she go to keep things that way?
Attacked by the striking dock workers, disregarded by her daughters, humiliated by her husband, and we few people to trust, this matriarch has got her work cut out.
Emily Juniper's searing adaptation transposes Maxim Gorky's seldom-seen masterpiece to the 1990's Dockers' Strike in Liverpool in a new production from award-winning ensemble The Faction.
