  "In front of our eyes
a wonder occurs:
in the hands of Slava
Stepnov and his theatre
this abstract proverb
becomes an alive
tragedy of nonconformity,
pride, and punishment."

Lord Byron's drama "Cain" has it all: God and Lucifer, philosophy and erotica, faith and skepticism, delight and irony. Our goal in this production is to find theatrical symbols adequate to Byron's romantic drama, and to explore such biblical attributes as Space, Heaven, and Death.
John Jiler as Lucifer
Past productions of Cain have suffered from what some might call "bad luck" or a "devilish aura." One example of this phenomenon is Stanislavsky's attempt to produce Cain with Moscow Art Theater. The monumental realism attempted then proved a dismal failure. The run was canceled after seven performances.
