Description : 'The Love-Girl and the Innocent' is a brilliant play about the inhuman world of the [Stalinist] camps, that have their own rules, and where nothing of the world outside matters. The 'Innocent' is a newly arrived prisoner, who still bears idealism and is reluctant to adopt the camp techniques of survival. His love for Lyuba, one of the many women forced by circumstances to sell themselves for privileges and rations, tempts him to compromise with himself and betray his moral and emotional loyalties. --Kabanowa at Amazon.com.
