The Murder of Rasputin
Staged Reading
February 21, 28
  THE MURDER OF RASPUTIN By Carol Marquart,  A Staged Reading

This is a story of the murder of Grigori Efimevich
Rasputin on December 17, 1916. A simple Siberian
peasant, Rasputin was many things to many people.
To his daughter, Maria, he was a holy but imperfect
man. To his assassin Prince Felix Yusupov, he was an
imposter and the Antichrist who crawled out of the
dark ages. What was the source of Rasputin’s power,
and why did his gruesome murder mark the beginning
of the end of Tsarist Russia? This staged reading is
not only about a murder but about the end of an empire!


Public is invited. 

Sally Griffin Senior Center, 700 Jewell Ave, Pacific Grove, CA 93950
