ATHENS, Ga. – The war to surely end all wars was finally at its close. Enter Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt, the leaders of the three great powers still standing, to meet face-to-face, palace by palace. Join Bruce Collier, J.D., as he performs all three leaders in this incredible one-man production that brings one of the most crucial moments in history to life at the 440 Foundry Pavilion at The Classic Center on October 14 at 6:45 p.m. Free to the public, Three Palaces at Yalta is set in February of 1945, at the Crimean resort town of Yalta. The Second World War is drawing to a bloody conclusion in Europe, with the armies of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich being driven back on all fronts to Berlin. 
The “Big Three” of the Allied heads of state, Marshal Josef Stalin of the USSR, Prime Minister Winston Churchill of the United Kingdom, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the United States, have gathered for a "summit" to discuss strategy and policy. Each leader is housed in a former Imperial Russian palace, Yusupov, Vorontsov, and Livadia, the settings for each act. 
In each of the three acts, Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt respectively voice their plans, concerns, and aspirations. Of particular interest to them is the future of Poland, whose invasion by Germany in 1939 ignited the global war, and which has become a symbol of potential conflict in post-war Europe. The three palaces also represent Fear, Honor, and Hope, aspects of the motivations and character of the statesmen who occupy them.
