by Maxim Gorky
In 1909 Maxim Gorky wrote
Vassa Zheleznova, a savage comedy about a Russian family at war over money, entitlement and the march of progress. But
Vassa Zheleznova also relates to one of the great Australian themes: how we hauled ourselves out of our working class past and set out on the road to a relaxed and comfortable future.
