Seams by Polly Phokeev

An old Russian woman’s confrontations with her youth as a seamstress in Soviet Moscow weave through the lives of costume-makers working in a theatre during the fall of 1939. A series of love and hate stories emerge from the dust as we witness the unfolding pieces of a past she has struggled to forget.

Seams is a play for anyone with ancestors, for a country born of immigrants, and for a community made of quilted-together culture.
