Following the Russian revolution of 1917 the Romanov Tsar, his wife, and five children were executed by firing squad.
The four daughters Olga (O), Tatiana(T), Marie(M), and Anastasia(A), are the subject of the University Theatre's next production, OTMA. It dramatizes their final days under house arrest, possibly performing scenes from Anton Chekov's The Cherry Orchard to pass the seemingly endless days.
The production is in the University Theatre's black box studio theatre. It is located on the same level as the mainstage theatre in Xavier Hall. The dates of the performance are April 8, 9 and 10.
The Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., the Sunday performance at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10, $9 for senior citizens, faculty and staff of Saint Louis University, and $7 for all students.
The University Studio Theatre is a small, intimate space.
Reservations (314-977-3327) are recommended as the seating in the theatre is limited to 68 at each performance.
