Screenplay by Stalin, a staged reading of a new play written by Tom Fontana, directed by BPL Co-Artistic Director Joe Cacaci.

In a room below Joseph Stalin, a pair of screenwriters have just completed a script for a film celebrating the Soviet triumph over the Nazis, and they’re anxiously waiting to hear what the man upstairs thinks.  Upon discovering that their room is wiretapped, and then overhearing a few suspicious orders just outside their door, they realize there may be a serious price to pay if their fearless leader isn’t happy.  When they do finally get some feedback, the writers have to decide whether sticking to the truth is worth risking their lives.

Berkshire Playwrights Lab’s annual Staged Reading Series presents new plays that are developed in an intense rehearsal process that provides playwrights an opportunity to work closely with a director and professional actors to refine their script through rehearsal, performance, and the post-reading audience talkback session.
