Memoirs of a Forgotten Man at New Jersey Repertory
A Soviet journalist with the gift of total recall. A psychologist seeking to rehabilitate herself. A government censor with a secret past. Their fates become entwined as victims and collaborators in Stalin’s campaign to rewrite public memory. Long before fake news was a trending topic, it was called propaganda. And in the Soviet Union, it was the grease that kept Stalin’s machinery of terror in motion. A haunting and suspenseful political thriller based on a true story.
