Leonid Zorin is Russian/Soviet dramatist who received encouragement, when still a small boy, from no less a figure than Gorky. He first came to international notice with his play Guests (1954), which deals with a new upper class spoiled by power and which places the blame squarely on Soviet society. Friends and Years (1962) was among the first attempts to deal frankly with the facts of Stalinist oppression, whilst a satirical comedy, Dion (1965), set during the time of the Roman Emperor Domitian, was removed from the stage in Leningrad (St Petersburg) when critics noted contemporary political allegories. Probably his most popular play is Warsaw Melody (1967), described as a lyrical drama in two parts, which reflects a major swing, during the 1960s, from the social to the personal in the wake of revelations about the legacy of Stalinism. Basically a love story, it concerns a Russian boy and Polish girl (both students) whose relationship is frustrated, first by laws which forbid Soviet citizens to marry foreigners, and subsequently by other factors which come between them. The play was performed 4,000 times in its first year alone at various venues throughout the country and on 150 separate occasions between 1967 and 1977.

Synopsis:

Love starts to blossom in the hostile terrain of the Soviet bloc when chance brings young Victor to beautiful Polish singer Helya at a concert hall in Moscow. But in Stalin's brutally controlled empire their love simply cannot be, and over the span of two decades of missed opportunitites and thwarted beginnings, from Moscow to Warsaw and back again, their passionate desire matures into an altogether different and more moving kind of love.
