HASH(0x9c2479c0) out of 5 stars Very funny dark humor 4 Oct. 2011
By B. Weintraub - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very funny play about what do you do with a dead guy. If he's a hero of the Soviet Union, treat him like a religious martyr! Irony never escapes Stalin. Atheistic Russia needs a religious icon and who does Stalin get to create this "perpetual corpse" but some Jews who are the victims of religious persecution. It's dark and made me think and laugh. Very imaginative and creative.
