The play involves fictitious characters, but parallels the life of Joseph Stalin. Characters include Peter, Max and George, along with Joseph - later Koba - and Jordan, based on Vladimir Lenin. It takes a mixed view of the Stalin-character:
LUKE: What we have really to face is how all this happened, how we became strong. MARK: It was not only Koba. In many ways he made us weaker. LUKE: But in other ways stronger. (Act Two, Scene VII).
