Under Western Eyes

A Play in Three Acts

Frank J. Morlock (Author), Joseph Conrad (Author)

Based on a novel by Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), “Under Western Eyes” tells the story of Razumov, a Russian student indirectly involved in the assassination of a Tsarist minister. Haldin, the man who committed the murder, seeks asylum with Razumov–and his assistance in escaping Russia. Razumov has no sympathy for his friend and gives him up to the Okhrana (the secret police). Reluctantly, Razumov is then recruited as an agent and sent to Switzerland to infiltrate the radical group behind Haldin. But his guilt consumes him, and he ultimately confesses his crime to Haldin’s sister. A compelling drama of political terrorism and betrayal!
