The Death of Ivan Ilych

Based on Tolstoy’s superb novella, it was commissioned by the International College of Oncopsychiatry (1999) and performed in Melbourne and Yokohama at international conferences. It explores the development of serious occult pain in a conceited upper class lawyer, and subsequent self-revelation and death. Characters such as Mother Russia and Sarah Bernhardt have been embroidered into the adaptation.
