Mavis Gallant's What Is To Be Done? -- the movie!

One of Linda Leith Publishing's fall books is Mavis Gallant's only play, What Is To Be Done? When our friends who run All Lit Up asked for ideas for blog posts, we put together a proposal we hope they'd go for in the "Character Study" category, imagining the play as a movie and having fun casting it. This all was Carmelita McGrath's work, and she packed it off last week. So now look what they've done. Those brilliant women have not only used the post, but have included a movie poster for it, with an image of Joe Stalin a cast to die for:

This is what makes a culture, this kind of occasion, this play, this green sward, this shared delight, the company of all these friends and strangers. This is Shakespeare in the Park, thanks to Repercussion Theatre.
