Kalashnikov : In the Woods by the Lake Paperback / softback
by Fraser Grace
This is a provocative new play about Mikhail Kalashnikov - the Russian inventor of the AK47 assault rifle, and a decorated Soviet hero.
Set in Kalashnikov's dacha amidst the dark woods and waters of a fairy tale Russian landscape, a young journalist, Volkov, comes to interview the elderly Kalashnikov about his time on the front line and his subsequent invention of the AK-47 assault rifle.
With the help of his daughter and grand-daughter, Kalashnikov initially welcomes Volkov into his home but as the questions harden and ambiguities appear in Kalashnikov's recollections, some painful and extremely uncomfortable truths begin to emerge...
