Information for The Last Ones at Jermyn Street Theatre, Inner London (Play). 1908, all of Russia is in chaos. Following the euphoria of the October Revolution, a tough crackdown by the government on liberals and dissidents has caused a rise in extremism, with a wave of assassinations, terrorism and open revolt. In a small town near Kazan a corrupt ex-police chief, fallen on hard times through womanising and gambling, has been forced to rely on the goodwill of his wealthy but ailing brother. As the family fritter away the last of the brother's fortune on bribes in attempt to restore them to power, there are rumblings of discontent amongst the youngest children, the last ones. As their world begins to collapse around them, why must they be left to pay for the sins of their parents? UK Premiere.
