Lee and Marina Oswald, courtesy Elysium Conservatory Theatre

Before he became the assassin of the 20th century, Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the Soviet Union, where he was called Alik and married Marina, a young Russian woman searching for love. Drawing from years of research, playwright Julio Vera has dramatized a pivotal time in Oswald's life, when his new wife begins to realize the depths of his darkness. In 1962, Oswald decides to return to the U.S., forcing Marina to make the decision of her life. 

In a collaborative effort, Elysium Conservatory Theatre brings to life this intimate drama in the shadows of Cold War artifacts currently on display in the Wende Museum galleries.
