Lenin, the Communist icon, believed that his secret life would die with him. The opening of the Soviet archives in the mid-1990s has proved otherwise. Lenin In Love is a comedy about a tragedy which exposes the sexual troika and the sadistic proclivities of arguably the foremost political genius of the last century. Lenin was a passionate lover, a Machiavellian strategist and a calculating murderer, and the frenzied paradoxes inherent in his life changed the course of history.
