Maxim Gorky’s “Children of the Sun” is set in Russia just before the revolution. It follows the new middle-class as they flounder about, philosophising and flirting, blind to their impending annihilation. Protasov immerses himself in chemical experiments, oblivious to his best friend’s pursuit of his wife, and the starving mob outside his house. Whilst his admiring circle spar over culture and the cosmos, only Liza feels the peoples’ suffering and senses their own privileged world is in jeopardy.

“Strange Interlude” tells the tale of Nina, who escapes her jealous father and embarks on a series of tawdry sexual adventures after the love of her life is killed in the war. But when she marries the amiable Sam and gets pregnant, she learns a horrifying secret which propels her into the arms of another — with fatal consequences.
