Set in Kiev during the Russian revolution THE WHITE GUARD tells a story about the war's effect on a middle-class family and was turned into a hugely successful play on publication. It brought the author overnight success and became 'a new SEAGULL' for the new generation, although it also received hostile reviews for the sympathetic portrayal of White officers. Paradoxically, THE WHITE GUARD was one of Stalin's favorite plays.It was banned in 1929, reinstated in 1932 but published only in 1955.
