Price: $2.99
“Savva” by Leonid Andreyev can be called a tragic comedy. It is definitely a strange drama. The author begins with the presentation of the plight of the educated people in Russia. The educated people are confronted by the abject superstition of the peasantry. Savva, a fanatical revolutionist, endeavors to wipe out this superstition by blowing up a monastery full of drunken monks. But the plot is revealed to the monks, who carry out the ikon, or sacred image, before the explosion, and afterwards carry it back into the ruins. The peasants, arriving on the scene and finding the ikon uninjured, hail a supreme miracle; the whole country is swept by a wave of religious frenzy, in the course of which Savva is trampled to death by a mob.. The play succeeds in drawing the audiences’ sympathy.
