Truth is lie; lie is truth. 1920: Jewish writer Isaac Babel begins a journal while serving in war. Ninety years later, this same journal is found in the wreckage of a suspicious plane crash. What did Babel write, and why does it matter? Ensemble member Rajiv Joseph’s epic thriller ricochets through place and time following the unlikely lives of seven individuals – soldiers and poets, KGB agents and babushkas – as they unearth mysteries buried by decades of history, fiction and blood. Real Russians and fake news.

“A sprawling exploration of… fact, censorship and the quest to preserve truth.” - Broadway World

“Fascinating, intriguing, gripping and often funny…Rajiv Joseph’s [Describe the Night is] a profound examination of how truth is a lie, but lies are truth.” - Chicago Theatre Review
