A new adaptation of Tolstoy's famous novella “The Death or Ivan Ilyich”.

The interactive performance is placed in a setting where the audience is part of a support group for people who have concerns about mortality.
Performed by Craig Smith who has been called by the New York Times "one of New York's consistently fine actors" and by Playgoer.com as "a downtown legend." The production is directed by Phoenix Theatre Ensemble Associate Artistic Director, Leo Lion.
