In the latest production of the Inside Out Speaker Series, the Saint Louis University Theater will perform scenes from the play "OTMA" (written by Kate Moira Ryan),under the direction of Nancy Bell, 1-3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 26, at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, Mo.
Following the Russian Revolution of 1917, Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia, was executed by firing squad with his wife and four daughters. The four daughters, Olga, Tatiana, Marie,and Anastasia, are the subject of this production. "OTMA," which gets its title from the acronym of the girls' names, dramatizes their last days under house arrest, performing scenes from Anton Chekov's "The Cherry Orchard" to pass the time leading up to their doom.
