Strider

"Strider" was performed by Stage 32 in the spring of 2013 and competed in the Vermont Drama Council's One Act Play festival bringing in acting and ensemble awards at the regional and state level of the festival.

This powerful play is Tolstoy’s story of life seen through the eyes of Strider, a piebald horse, told through poignant scenes, movement, dance and song. Despite his maverick coat, Strider is a thoroughbred and a champion. and as he tells his story to the other horses in the stable, it is one of unexpected triumph and undeserved despair.

Book by Mark Rozovsky, adapted from Leo Tolstoy's story. English stage version by Robert Kalfin and Steve Brown. Based on Tamara Bering Sunguroff's translation. Music by M. Rozovsky and S. Vetkin.
