(8/15/2009)

Back by popular demand, Australian actress Jennifer Claire returns to perform her triumphal one-woman show "Tolstoy's Wife" at Ubud's Amandari Resort on Saturday, August 15, 2009.

Jennifer Claire

Over the forty years Jennifer has been an actress, she has appeared in over two hundred productions, five films and several television series, her one-woman show "Lillian" was performed at The Playhouse in Melbourne for the Spoleto Festival. Favorite roles include 'The Duchess of Mali', ‘Masha', ‘Olga', in "Three Sisters" and ‘Varya' in "The Cherry Orchard."

Jennifer first showcased "Tolstoy's Wife" at the Bleecker Street Theatre, New York, under the direction of one of New York's leading director's William Pomerantz. She says that it was through his great encouragement and interest in "Tolstoy's Wife" that she wrote a second script towards more clarity, that she will perform in Ubud on August 15th. She has also performed in Singapore, London, Sydney and Melbourne.

"Toltsoy's Wife"

The play itself is beautifully written and performed by Jennifer via the character of Sonia, Tolstoy's wife, and covers the important periods in their married life. She introduces us to many of Tolstoy's contemporaries, including Maxim Gorki, Turgenev, Chekhov, and many others.

Russians have many names. Sonia is the name given by Tolstoy to his wife. Meanwhile, Leo Tolstoy is also known as Lev Nikolevich or Lyova.

Previous Bali performances of "Tolstoy's Wife took place at the Amandari in 2006 with a repeat performance for the Ubud Writers & Readers Festivals in 2008.

The Story Line

The Countess Sonia Tolstoy waits in the Winter Palace, St. Petersburg, for her interview with Tsar Alexander III.

She has come to beg the Tsar to lift the censorship on the ‘Kreutzer Sonata,' Tolstoy's latest work, which has shocked all of Russia.

Sonia Behrs, the Countess Tolstoy, was a young girl of eighteen when she married the thirty-eight year old Tolstoy who, in his lifetime, was acknowledged as one of the greatest writers in the world; a man so popular in Russia, he was called the second Tsar. She bore him thirteen children, nine of whom lived.

The play is Sonia's story, the love she felt for Tolstoy, despite all the trials of a fifty-year marriage.

All his life Tolstoy struggled with his sexuality, always striving for the celibacy he never managed to attain.

Tolstoy's spiritual reliance on his fanatical disciple, the pedantic Vladimir Grigoryevich Chertkov annoyed Sonia. She distrusted him and came to hate him vehemently.
