REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA

A New Play

by Dato Turashvili

Directed Adam Knight

In 1921, as the Red Army prepares to invade the capital of newly independent Georgia, a group of politicians, dissidents, and ordinary citizens flee in a train bound for the port city of Batumi. Their journey reflects the regional differences, political fissures, and joy for living that make Georgia at once unconquerable and hopelessly democratic. Will European powers and America intervene, or will another small country fall to Russian aggression?
