  • Overview
    'It's a Family Affair - We'll Settle It Ourselves'. First published in a magazine, Tsar Nicholas I banned the play from performance, because of the uproar it caused amongst the merchants. They were horrified of his depiction of the seamier side of their lives. Ostrovsky was put under police surveillance and a year later he was forced to resign his civil service post.
